The Greenville City Council will hear recommendations concerning parking in the East Carolina University area during its 7 p.m. meeting today at City Hall.
The University Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative (UNRI) Committee at its March 19 meeting approved recommendations to the council to develop backyard parking standards for the overlay district and to make on-street parking within the overlay district controlled access for residents only.
The UNRI Committee was appointed by council following the establishment of the neighborhood revitalization initiative and overlay district. Objectives were to establish a temporary citizen working group for up to 12 months, pursue funding sources to establish favorable terms and low-interest loans and grants for revitalization of properties in the overlay district, pursue a parking permit plan for the overlay district, launch an active community watch program, and attach unpaid code violation fees to property tax bills of property owners.
