On the traffic-clogged streets of the Tar River-university neighborhood, where parking is coveted like the rarest of treasures, any piece of grass, gravel or concrete is fair game for a college student in need of a spot.

Controlled-parking zones, specially marked curbs and city permitting laws are ignored in the residential district just north of East Carolina University.


In some areas, yards in both the front and back of residences are entirely used for parking, according to the findings of a walk-through of the neighborhood on Tuesday by a work group formed to revive the historic waterfront community.

Maybe that expensive parking deck will help

BAHHAAAAA sure folks will rush to the parking deck for the crime infested area. Gotta love this one.

That is because they need somewhere to park if

not a resident. Agree with peppe. Get over it and definitely self serving. Damn now the Council will come up with another assinine ordinance. God Help us as citizens of Greenville

The same parking violations

The same parking violations exist in other low income neighborhoods. Mr. Saad ought to know.Self serving politics as usual.
