Parking ban proposed in Greensburg's Saybrook Village
Greensburg City Council is expected to vote Monday on whether to ban parking on a street in the Saybrook Village housing plan for four months.
Council briefly discussed the proposal for Cranston Drive during a meeting Tuesday. Council holds its voting regular meeting on Monday.
Under the measure, council would prohibit parking between Dec. 1 and March 31 each year.
In March, residents living along the street presented a petition to council requesting the change.
They said cars parked on the street hinder city snowplows and in some cases impeded residents from getting out of their driveways.
All the homes on the stretch have a garage or a driveway where vehicles can be parked, but some residents opt to park on Cranston, residents told council.
“People do not want to pull in their driveways for whatever reasons,” resident Judy Polidora said during the March meeting. “It's ridiculous.”
City administrator Sue Trout told council that 81 properties are along the stretch and the petition contained 41 signatures, a required majority of property owners for council to vote on the change.
A city ordinance requires a petition to be filed before council can consider parking changes.
