Parking Rule Changes

Post  trebor on Sat Feb 12, 2011 2:59 pm

The parking rule change to be adopted by the BOD is the most idiotic rule that would be impossible to enforce. The 72 hour rule is not even being enforced. What is wrong with the 72 hour rule? There are a quite a few residents who use their garage for storage and as long as they are not violating any of the current parking rules I would think they have a "legal" right to do so. There are many residents who are breaking the current parking rules whether they are using their garage for storage or not.

Even under the current 72 hour rule one could move their car from one space to another or leave the complex and come back in a hour and if the same spot is available they could park in it.The current rule is for 72 consecutive hours in the same spot. The ridiculous new rule states: 3 times during any 3 consecutive month period. How in the world could this be enforced? It is obvious to me that this new rule was not clearly thought out. It makes no sense what so ever. Just keep the existing rules and enforce them.

On several occasions I have been told it is very difficult to change CC&R rules. How can the new rule be adopted by the BOD without changing the CC&Rs?

The board is trying to get tougher on addressing frequent violators of the 72 hour rule. Currently when a vehicle is parked longer than 72 hours we can write a summons giving a warning that the car may be towed. We have to give the owner another 72 hours before we tow. This does not apply to parked vehicles in fire zones where we can tow automatically. The new rule would allow the board to fine the homeowner who receives 3 notices in a given time. It does not take the place of our current 72 hour parking rule.

Did that make sense???

As far as adding the rule. Apparently the board does have the right to change the parking rules without changes to the CC&Rs. I don't recall the legal reason why.

New Parking Rule

Thanks Admin for providing some clarification. The Villagio at River Oaks Gazette makes no reference to the 72 hour rule. The statements made in the Gazette make no sense to me at all.

Tom,

Yes your clarification makes it clear now. The text in the newsletter doesn't refer to three 72 hour violations so it looks like a very bad rule.

How often do we see 72 hour violations?

I spoke with some of my neighbors in my building and we all don't see the need for any parking rules.

We probably get 1 complaint per week on average. I don't have the bandwidth to walk the complex like I used to but when I did, I would usually give 2-3 summons per week easily and in a majority of cases the same vehicles would be involved. Owners would just move the car and then leave it for an extended period. It seems that some buildings are worse then others.

Parking

Post  mvilimek on Tue Jun 07, 2011 2:51 am

Last week we got back from a short 5 day trip over the long weekend with a notice on our vehicle that said “Scheduled for towing in 48 hours” (not 72 hours as it states below) after the initial 72 hour-mark violation and that we “ignored our warnings” and some other strongly worded text.

Simply said, our house sitter who took us to the airport and also parked our vehicle, didn’t follow our directions or much less bothered to check on that vehicle which 98% of the time is parked out on the street or in our garage (good luck on finding parking in our complex at 7:00PM). It is not one of those vehicles that regularly occupies the guest parking spots on a daily bases for years, sometimes not moving for weeks. If we were a regular offender, I would understand...but we are not...and things happen.

What I would like to propose is that we form a vehicle registry for the owners (and renters) of the complex. Simple things like this can be cleared up with a simple phone call. So the folks watching these things can focus their attention on more important and pressing issues like the speeders in our complex. That Silver Honda CRV that has almost run me over multiple times and almost hit my car as I backed out (we have a blindspot with our hedges and they were on the phone). Or those very fast sporty cars (Suburu, Mercedes convertible, Mazda, etc) that fly through our complex at 35mph.

Also, can we do an education campaign in our complex? My thinking is that there are dozens of renters that have no idea they are breaking the rules as there is no obvious indication that it is guest parking (not to mention the other rules). With parking, other condo complexes have very clear warnings posted everywhere, sign posts, lettering on the ground and so forth to let folks know that this guest parking. Not extra free spots to cram a few extra cars into. My house sitter would have thought twice if there was one there.

I think the reason why tone in the third warning was more harsh was because the van received two other warnings within 30 days. It sounds like you never saw them?? I have a picture of when we placed the third warning and the second warning was sitting in the van. Very Happy

Anyway, I agree that prior to this I never noticed the van so it wasn't a problem.

If you go on vacation you can notify Peachtree and the HOA can waive the 72 rule for a limited time. Just an FYI.
