St. Johns Golf and Country Club Street Parking Policy
Why has street parking become a greater issue for our neighborhood?
As St. Johns Golf & Country Club has matured, there are increased numbers of vehicles on the road. This is in part due to more of the community’s children having reached driving age and greater numbers of commercial vehicles are on our roads, including contractors for lawn, home renovation and repair, pool maintenance, home cleaning, school busses etc. In addition, there are also a significant number of golf carts, runners, cyclists, walkers and other traffic adding to the congestion. All of these factors contribute to increased safety concerns on our community roads that were basically designed as residential streets carrying slow two-way traffic. Habitual street parking magnifies the safety hazard as well as adds inconvenience and aggravation for our neighbors.
Our Covenants require that vehicles be parked in garages or driveways and enforcement of the neighborhood covenants is the responsibility of the Covenant Enforcement Committee as directed by the HOA Board of Directors. Recognizing these Covenant requirements, but also considering that there are times when parking on the street is unavoidable, the CEC focus has been, and will continue to be, on habitual violators and those that cause safety issues. These include, but are not limited to, double parking, parking on both sides of the street, parking within 100 feet of an intersection, blocking or parking directly across from driveways, blocking a clear path for emergency vehicles and parking facing on-coming traffic.
