At last Tuesday’s meeting, the Council held a public hearing to get residents’ input about a proposed parking restriction on Beechwood Road in Oldtown College Park.

The City has received several complaints that non-residents are parking on the 4500 and 4600 blocks of Beechwood Road for extended periods of time which is negatively impacting the residents who live there.

It appears that additional parking is coming from construction workers at the Bozzuto project.

At the Public Hearing, residents spoke in support of establishing a Residential Permit Restricted Parking Zone to address these concerns.

The proposed zone would be enforced Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, with a 2-hour allowance for parking without a permit to allow for deliveries and short-term visitors. The proposal is to also allow the Council to reconsider permit parking after two years.
