    The city of Columbus wants to put an end to parking in some alleys in German Village. Based on complaints from residents and refuse workers, the Department of Public Service said it intends to post no parking signs on portions of Rader, Purdy, Blackberry and Macon alleys, and an unnamed alley west of Jaeger Street.

    I know some people who are going to be very unhappy about this, but having hard to find parking is pretty common in a lot of large cities.

    People? Traffic? Complainers?

    City needs to add permit parking on Franklin Avenue around the Davis Discovery Center and Kelton House. It’s becoming impossible to park near home because visitors or downtown workers take parking spaces. Stressful enough with so many people sharing apartments, etc.

    Chicks?

    I wonder how the City will respond when people are parking on their private property next to the alley.

    Alleys to get no-parking signs

    Garbage trucks can’t get by them. Police cars have a hard time, too. The problem? Parked cars in a number of German Village alleys and narrow streets. The solution? The city will place no-parking signs in seven areas to keep traffic moving and help police enforce parking laws.

    Franklinton, just west of Downtown, has plenty of alleys, but no one is complaining about cars blocking traffic, said Matt Egner of the neighborhood’s area commission.

    That was a weird thing to put in the article.

    Ha! Yes… really, an attempt to equate totally dissimilar alleys, totally dissimilar situations. Poor sap.

    They tossed that bit in there so residents of the west side will be less shocked when they start lining our alleys with no parking signs to make some money… I mean keep the alleys clear. LOL

    I dream of the day when Weinland Park is occupied and in-demand enough that we get to post no-parking signs in the alleys.
