Magnolia Residents Take Action Against Commuter Daily Parking

A group of Magnolia residents are taking action against people parking on their street who don’t live there and use their street as a park-and-ride when taking the bus or using other transportation from Magnolia Village. These folks are taking action by putting notes on cars who park on the street daily, asking them not to park on their street for the following reasons, according to the Magnolia Voice:¬†

“It is public in the sense that residents use it to enter and exit their homes at all times and in the sense that it accommodates parking for residents’ guests, deliveries and trash pickup along with thru traffic. It is a narrow street and a busy one. Using it as a place to park while commuting to another location impedes all of the essential public uses named above and is causing problems for those who need to enter and exit their driveways, park on or pass along this block.”

The group listed off other parking areas that would be less disruptive for the neighborhood and one of the parking violators actually turned out to be a neighbor 6 blocks away! Whether you agree with either party, the street is currently Seattle Public property, so residents and commuters might have to take their disputes to a higher party if the problem escalates.
