Petition Tag - parking lot
Traffic and parking is a growing concern for drivers. Drivers are impeded by delays in their routine commutes and spend an uncomfortably long period of time searching for parking spaces at stores and workplaces.
The main cause is solo driving, the act of driving with no accompanying passengers. Solo drivers take up passenger seats and whole parking spaces, amenities that could easily accommodate four or more people at a time.
Also, it is unfair to motorists for one motorcycle to occupy an entire parking space when two can easily fit into one.
The parking lots of Cambridge on Devonshire (CoD) often become overcrowded due to narrow parking spots and double-parking.
On occasion, individuals have also voiced their concerns of having their cars scratched or dented by adjacent cars. CoD should assign a number to each parking space, and have a tag for the resident's vehicle matching that parking space number and current license plate or have the night guard on duty verify cars are in their designated locations. Parking spots should be widened to assure drivers can enter and exit their cars comfortably, decreasing the probability of accidents.
Parking spaces should be assigned upon the resident's apartment lease date.
CoD should have security cameras installed ensuring that there are no hit and runs occurring within the safety of their gated parking areas. Parking spots should still be widened to ensure that tenants are able to get out of their cars comfortably.
Dear Westchester Neighbors:
To preserve the small town atmosphere we enjoy in Westchester, we must mobilize to stop the transformation of our neighborhood into Loyola Marymount University’s (LMU) free parking lot. Please sign this petition urging the university to adopt acceptable measures to prevent the LMU campus population from parking on our streets.
Beginning August 27, ALL visitors will be charged to park on campus. In January 2013, any of the campus population who wish to park on campus will be charged approximately $ 700 per year. The choice is clear – pay to park on campus or park for FREE on the surrounding residential streets.
Permit Parking is NOT the Solution
LMU’s solution to the burden they are creating for our neighborhood is a Preferential Parking District (PPD). Permit parking, with the associated costs and inconveniences, is NOT a solution – it is a . . . nightmare!
LMU allocated $24,000 annually to fund two permits per house in a defined area, should residents elect to implement a PPD, but, not all streets close to LMU will benefit from the small subsidy which does not cover the cost of visitor or guest parking. For more information see www.whole100.org. The burden is on residents to create a PPD, which can take years to implement. The creation of PPDs also has the potential to create a ripple effect – when campus populations cannot park on one street they will park on the next – think graduation, 4th of July Parade EVERYDAY!
We will NOT be Ignored Any Longer
LMU sold the community on its Master Plan, promising “A Better LMU” with the guarantee that it would not be expanding its borders, its footprint. Using Westchester streets as its parking lot is an expansion that will impact ALL of Westchester.
LMU ignores the residents of Westchester. LMU has a responsibility to consider and adopt policies to ensure that Westchester does NOT become LMU’s FREE parking lot.
We, the undersigned residents of Westchester, oppose Loyola Marymount University’s decision to begin charging for on-campus parking. LMU must take acceptable measures to prevent students, faculty, and staff from parking on Westchester streets. We demand that LMU address our concerns immediately.
The parking lot at Murphy's Landing Apartments (MLA) becomes sporadically overcrowded, frustrating residents. MLA should assign a number to each parking space, and have a tag for the resident's vehicle matching that parking space number and current license plate.
Parking spaces should be assigned based upon the resident's apartment lease date. This parking space system is needed to utilize parking areas for residents first, guests second. Parking spaces in front of buildings should be reserved for residents only.
The overflow parking areas should be claimed by residents with a second vehicle, then the remainder used by guests.
The Town of Fergus states that the parking lot is private property and belongs to the Hasty Market and Royal Cleaners.
We have been talking about this issue with both the owners and the township and they say there is nothing they can do about fixing the pot hole.
This is a huge irritant to not only us but our customers as well.
We would like this dealt with.
Two existing farmers markets current operate on down town levee area of Davenport, Iowa.
RiverCity Farmers Market, operates on the westside of the parking lot, which is headed by Luann Cedillo and a board of three others.
Mississippi Valley Growers Association, operating on the eastside of said parking lot, wich is headed by Jane Weber and a board of seven others that is self-perpetuated.
Neither of these markets allow their vendors to vote on issues that affect them or to even be at meetings that pertain to them.
Vendors are only notified of any said rules of change until board feel it necessary to let them know.
We the tenants of Arlington Manor have been victims of theft or damages to our vehicles.
We have reported these thefts and damage to the management staff, police and our insurance companies.
As the Town of Agawam expands so does the number of families. The high school parking lot needs to increase in size as to allow for the number of students that need to park.
One can see that each year the number of students increases and we need to increase our parking spaces to accomodate this.
Until then we need to allow any available spaces to be given to juniors who meet a certain criteria.
The children should not be let out of school into an unattended alley way which flows into a very busy parking lot.
The alley way will pose problems in the winter months when snow and ice are in season and children can slip and fall injuring themselves.
The children not only have the potential of being abducted in an unsupervised alley way but also are being put into harms way having to walk through an occupied and busy parking lot.

The driveway at Primus Electronics has many pot holes that are filled with rocks.
These rocks have been spread throughout the entire parking lot and have caused many people (employees and customers alike) have tripped/fallen over these rocks.
For the safety of all who enter the pearly Primus gates, we need the diveway re-done!
This petition is being drawn up because there is a great need for a parking lot for the Near South Health Center.
The Health Center provides service for a large variety of different age groups, with that being from infants to senior citizens. It is a great inconvienence for clients that may have a disability or those with young children. The inconvenience comes into play because there is no close by parking, nor is there any accessible parking for the disable.
The possible available parking is being consumed by the patrons and employees of the Police Department located directly across the street from the health center. The other nearby parking is the Churches Chicken restaurant which has now barred any of the patients from parking in their parking lot, there also use to be a vacant lot located on the left side of the health center which has now been fenced in which makes that off limits as well, therefore the patients or other visitors of the health center must park approximately 2-3 blocks away or take a chance on parking in the restaurant just to have the convenience of the closeness.
Again there is definitely a great need for a parking facility for the patients and visitors to park without the risk of getting towed or ticketed.
This petition is to help save the Oran Z Pan African Black Facts and Wax Museum, 3742 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90008.
A re-development company is seeking to tear down the museum and an African-American owned business that is not in the way of the development and make it a parking lot. Every effort has been made to work with the developer concerning saving the museum and businesses housed at this location to no avail.
Now we are asking for everyone to rally behind the effort to save history, culture and art housed in this museum; as well as the livelihood of the business owner.
The parking lot located on 6th street between North and Broadway, has been a municipal parking lot for 30 years. The city has leased this lot, collected parking monies and maintained this lot to provide parking for its downtown merchants and their patrons. In May of 2003, the city was informed that the lease would not be renewed. The city did nothing to try to keep the lot, which serves upward of a dozen local merchants in the immediate vicinity. We the undersigned of this petition request that the city take action to: 1) reinstate the lot as a municipal lot, either through legal action or negotiations, or 2) address the lack of parking by appointing monies to build/ develop municipal parking lots.
