Chatfield parking restrictions approved


Fri, May 27th, 2011
Posted in Government

After a lengthy discussion the Chatfield City Council at their May 23 meeting approved a year long parking prohibition on the west side of Burr Oak Street in the area of the ball fields.

Councilor Russ Smith insisted the parking prohibition was necessary for safety reasons as the area sees heavy congestion during ball games. He asked councilors to be proactive before there is an accident.

Councilor Ken Jacobson said the issue was discussed a couple of years ago. City Clerk Joel Young noted that the opinions of residents at the time was a "mixed bag." Jacobson said at that time they wanted to see what impact the parking lot would have.

The Public Works Committee recommended the restricted parking which would improve safety in the area. The restriction would be consistent with other parking restrictions around the high school property.

Councilors discussed the possibility of having the restricted parking only during games and only during a six or seven month period during the spring and the summer. Mayor Don Hainlen noted the greatest objection to a parking restriction was from the home owners in that area, saying their house guests would be inconvenienced with restricted parking.

Councilor Paul Novotny suggested they try the restriction in a narrow section. Smith added residents could still park on the curb side of the street. He suggested the restricted section be from the waterway just north of the north field along the west side (or school side) of Burr Oak to the south end of the south ball field.

A motion was amended to prohibit parking on the west side of Burr Oak Street between no parking signs all year. City Attorney Fred Suhler said the parking restriction had to be in a simple form to be enforceable, meaning a lifting of restrictions during some months or when games are not being played would be confusing and harder to enforce.

Councilor Josh Thompson agreed it was the city's duty to protect kids, but he insisted there was not enough parking. He asked where those twenty or so cars are going to park? He suggested the parking prohibition will cause disruptions for residents on adjoining streets. The parking prohibition was approved with Thompson voting no to both the amendment and the motion.
