Neighborhood representatives asking for more aggressive enforcement from the city

Full Summary:

Because parking and congestion has been such a big issue, Home Park representatives intend to ask the city's new parking enforcement office to include the neighborhood on its regular runs, resulting in tickets for those parked illegally.

The residents of Home Park, which borders Georgia Tech to the north, are taking action to curb some of the increased traffic congestion it has experienced in recent years. With its narrow streets and single-side parking restrictions, neighbors hope this action will deter illegal parkers, creating more space for residents and allow emergency vehicles to pass without hazard.

Because parking and congestion has been such a big issue, Home Park representatives intend to ask the city's new parking enforcement office to include the neighborhood on its regular runs, resulting in tickets for those parked illegally.

Kathy Boehmer, who chairs the public safety committee for the Home Park Community Improvement Association (HPCIA), wanted the Georgia Tech community to be aware that the neighborhood intends to crack down on this issue.

"Before the city closed down its parking enforcement office a few years ago, we used to have them come through the neighborhood," she said. "But since they've been gone, the problem has come back. Now we're going to tackle it again."
