I went to the Office today and saw a pickup truck and trailer taking up all 4 Visitor Parking spots on the East side of the complex. This is but one recent example, many others have occurred in the past few months.  So, I drove over there and had a look.  There was a handwritten sign on the passenger window:


Owning a home and paying your dues does not let you park where ever you want.  To refresh our memories, the Parking Rules for this Subdivision are below:

Parking Rules & Regulations

1. No parking in designated fire lanes.
2. No parking on any grassy area designated as either Easement or Common Area.
3. Visitors Lots

a. 48 hour parking limit.
b. no boats or recreational vehicles may be stored in these lots.
c. no tractors or trailers may be parked in these lots.
d. no inoperative vehicles may be parked in these lots
(this includes expired inspection stickers and expired license plates)
e. no over-hauling of vehicles
f. Visitors Lots are for the use of Visitors – not Owners or Tenants

Our current Towing policy is to tag the offending vehicle first and give the violator sufficient time (24 hours, except for Fire Lane violations) to remedy the situation. However, if the violator does not remedy the violation within that time frame, the vehicle will be towed at the owners expense.  The tow drivers will document everything with pictures in the event the tow is challenged.

Fire Lane violations will have a very small window of time to move their vehicles or they will get towed. We have instructed the tow drivers to give around 15-20 minutes for those unloading cars or helping a loved one inside.  The Association has spent time and money to re-stripe the streets and have bought signs to go up on fences indicating that it is a Fire Lane/Tow Away Zone.
