Good news -- the Commissioner of the Department of Public Works came to the NPU-N meeting last night and let us know that there will not be parking changes on Brooks & Callan Circle after all. He also committed that if changes are needed in the future, they will only be made with dialog and input from affected residents.
In order to ensure safety & sanitation vehicles access to these streets, the City will begin enforcing existing regulations about parking near intersections. That means no parking within 20 feet of an intersection, or 30 feet of a stop sign. To raise awareness of these laws, the CIty will re-paint the curb yellow within 20-30 feet of intersections on Brooks and Callan Circle.
Commissioner Mendoza also said the Sanitation department will schedule trash pick-up on these streets at times residents are likely to be at work, so fewer cars will be on the street.
Finally, the City of Atlanta has published a one-page flyer with guidelines about parking laws to help residents and visitors park safely. The flyer is available here. These rules apply to all our streets, and following them will promote safety across our neighborhood.
