Permit Parking Update: Morgan Street and A Street
There is currently a push to obtain permit parking along Morgan Street and A Street. This is one possible solution to the amount of car camping going on in the area. It also, may be a wise move with the SMART train starting service in the next year which may create a greater volume of non-residents parking in the neighborhood. In order for permit parking to be established on these streets, 60% of the residents on each street must sign a petition stating their support. Several neighbors will be circulating these petitions shortly.
Permit Parking Details:
Parking permits are $20 each/year. Each single-family dwelling can purchase up to three permits. Each apartment, condo, townhouse, or granny unit can purchase 1 permit/unit. Permits can be shared with friends and family. Once permit parking is established on a street, the city’s Parking Department will cite any drivers parking for over 2 hours between 8am and 6pm, Monday-Saturday. For more information visit:
