Denver Colorado East Central
Hey there! I was walking around Lindsley Park recently and noticed several new streets that are now 2-hour parking, e.g. Dahlia, Eudora, etc. It seems these signs were installed this weekend (8/17).
Anyone else notice this? I'm wondering if there was any communication with the neighborhood first, and what the city's justification for the change was.
There was no formal notification between the City and our neighborhood about this change. In years past, all it took was several residents on a given street to complete an application requesting that their street be converted to 2-hour restricted parking. But a few years ago, the City did an about face and tried to abolish this program, and they made it nearly impossible to implement 2-hour restricted parking in our neighborhood and several neighborhoods nearby. Maybe there has been another regime change in this dept of the City? I am as baffled as you are. Perhaps you could start by contacting your City Councilwoman Amanda Sawyer's office and asking them for a little help understanding this.
After posting here, I actually did reach out to Amanda Sawyer's office. They looked in to the matter, and it turns out that I was actually mistaken – the two-hour parking restrictions are not new; they've been around for 4-5 years. A new sign was added, which is what confused me, but the general 2-hour restriction had been in place before then.
So, it was largely an error on my part, whoops! Thanks for your reply!
Sorry for the delay in my reply - it's been a difficult summer. And thanks for the heads up about what you found after talking to the City!
