Meeting Objectives Today
Gather concerns and ideas regarding parking problems
Understand CV rules, HUD involvement, and enforcement issues
Develop list of suggested changes to parking rules
Discuss how other communities have addressed parking issues
Discuss what should be listed on a member parking survey
Some of Our Issues
Monopolization of street and guest parking
Rules changed without seeking community feedback
Lack of clarity in rules (# days, street vs guest spots)
One vehicle "holding" two spaces, doing the shuffle
Oversized vehicles -- Current issues: campers, commercial vehicles, tall vehicles
Lack of enforcement - patrol enforcement vs member initiated calls/photos
Cars dripping oil and ruining pavement
HUD approval of parking rule changes - HUD expectations, one car free?
Handicap/front of unit parking requests, letter from doctor?
HUD form - https://www.hud.gov/sites/dfiles/OCHCO/documents/76E.pdf
More covered parking - neighbors convincing each other doesn't work
Some units may still have two assigned spaces

Rule / Policy Change Ideas & Suggestions
Proposed rules changes shared with all members for public comment and feedback
Annual parking permits. fees for 2nd/3rd vehicles
Temporary or overnight guest permits (day or week, charge a fee)
Renting our spaces to others
Member vs Staff enforcement - staff can be accused of being arbitrary and discriminatory
Annual registration (implemented again)
Verbal warnings (based on knowledge or sticker lookup) vs letters vs tagging cars vs towing
Broad enforcement of stickers, many are faded
Hiring uniformed patrol to walk property and enforce parking each night
How to prove long term parking (photograph wheel & road four days apart)
Un-grandfathering vehicles in violation
Numbering our guest spots not in front of units
Other Suggestions from Past Parking Committees
2018 Committee Plan (never presented)
Map of possible new parking spots (as described from a previous parking committee effort?)
Parking Rules from Nearby Coops
All nearby coops were started by the same people and began with the same
Scottsdale East Homes Rules -
Consolidated Coops Rules -
Tucson Coop Rules -
Parking Boss - https://luminoushoa.com/products/parkingboss
From a variety of sources including past minutes, meetings, committees, brainstorming, etc
Convert basketball court fence area to straight-in parking (during planned replacement)
Convert grass areas at entrance to parking lots to parking spaces (reduce water bill)
Add sidewalk cutbacks next to sides of buildings for diagonal parking (currently planned for xeroscape because of water pooling and foundation issues)
Add diagonal parking on Concord (remove median)
Remove gates at entrances to allow more street parking spots
People walking the village checking door handles, stealing opportunity items inside cars
Catalytic converter theft
Dash cams can take photos during the night (less drain on battery)
Painting house numbers on the curb
Fair Housing and ADA Spaces

Community Parking Rules on the Web
No reason to reinvent the wheel. Google: condominium "parking rules" (or apartment, etc). A parking policy change will more likely be adopted by the community if we can find another similar community who successfully employed the same solution to solve the same problem.
