Latest update on Arizona Avenue parking

Sarah Wynn, LCN president, sent the following update from last Thursday’s NPU-N meeting, where the parking situation on Arizona was discussed:

Last week at the NPU-N meeting, Dept. of Public Works commissioner Richard Mendoza announced that instead of limiting parking to one side of Arizona Avenue, the department is going to simply enforce current parking regulations. To do this most effectively, the curbs within 30 feet of stop signs will be painted yellow, and No Parking signs will be installed per the regulations below.

Comm. Mendoza also described a new, more resident-friendly process for addressing transportation access problems and parking changes.

PARKatlanta will get the enforcement notice once the painting and signing is complete. They should issue warnings on Arizona in the first month before writing tickets with fines.
