New West Homestead parking ordinance appears to be effective

Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014, 3:26 a.m.
 

West Homestead officials say a new overnight street parking ordinance in the borough's Calhoun Village and Calhoun Manor neighborhoods is having the desired effect.

Homestead council adopted the ordinance last month to improve access to the neighborhood for fire, public safety and road maintenance vehicles.

The restriction for on-street parking is in effect year-round from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m., but borough police Chief Christopher Deasy said during Tuesday's council meeting that parking has “been good even during daylight hours.”

Deasy said only one resident has complained about the restriction.

Council president William Stasko said he's received positive feedback about the ordinance.

Council on Tuesday adjusted the ordinance to have the same hours regardless of the time of year. When it was adopted last month, the restriction hours varied between standard and daylight saving time.

Council voted to allow special permits for on-street overnight parking in special instances. Residents must request a waiver from the borough, which has seven days to approve or deny the request. If the borough does not respond within a week, the waiver automatically is granted.
