Drivers, please note there’s a new ‘No Standing’ sign on York Street at Front Street. This sign went up last week and cars have been ticketed and towed. One of our readers wrote in:
Wanted to alert you to the new No Standing sign at the bottom of York Street at the corner of Front. I parked at the bottom of the street Friday night and was towed promptly at 7am on Saturday morning. I talked to a neighbor who said the sign went up on Monday (to the best of his knowledge).
The new No Standing sign is quite a ways away from the restricted area (because there is a hydrant and a driveway in between) and there is no sign at the very corner, so if you are on “auto pilot” when you are looking for parking in the neighborhood, there is no way you are going to see the new signage. In addition, the sign is on the far side of post, making it nearly impossible to see unless you are standing right in front of it.
In other parking news, the parking meter pay system (made by Parkeon) have been installed to replace the individual meters. The cost is $0.25 per 15 minutes.
