We have been having issues with residents, both owners and renters, parking vehicles in the Visitor Lots without the required Visitor Parking Permits displayed on the vehicle.
All visitor lots are clearly marked with signage that says:
In many cases, what people tend to concentrate on these signs is the “48 Hour Limit” part, thinking that phrase gives them 48 hours within which to park a resident vehicle in a visitor lot. That is not the case, however. It says that Visitors can park in the visitor lot for a period of time no longer than 48 hours.
The next part of the sign details the consequences for violating the top part of the sign, towing at your expense. In the past month or so,we have towed about 6 or 7 resident vehicles parked in the visitor lots. These signs and the verbiage upon them are not new; the signs and these rules have been here for about 40-45 years.
We do understand that sometimes it is necessary to utilize the visitor lot when getting work done on you property or if you have company over and they need to park closer to the house due to disabilities. We have notified folks in the Information notices we send out twice a year that if you need to park a vehicle in the visitor lot for a short period, you need to call the Office and let us know.
So, please keep this in mind and if you do need to park a vehicle in the visitor lot, call the Office. If the Office is closed, leave us a message or use the Contact Us button in the menu. I check that email address several times daily.
