Parking in subdivisions

I cannot believe I have lived here 20 yrs. and now I cannot park in front of my house on the street when it is plenty wide enough.If it was a problem I could see but it's not. It's the small town attitudes and laws that hold Mt. Carmel down. You can park on city streets in Kingsport.Why would the board punish the taxpayers who may not have enough driveway space. How about worrying about real crimes like stalking, being a predator. No, they wanna give tickets for parking in front of your house. Way to fight crime guys. Good job!

Yes that's crazy. You can see this board is against its citizens for their own agendas. There will be another election. Votes can swing the other way quick. Mt. Carmel will never grow when you make these type laws. We the people should have some rights.

I urge anyone who's against these signs about not parking on our streets to go to the next board meeting to let them know how you feel. They should not be able to do us like this. I bet politics and votes are behind these decisions. The town has been fine with the parking the way it was.

I think that's a little different than parking on a city street, don't you? Parking on a city street don't hurt anyone. If its a problem talk to them instead of putting it here. I would.

I have a driveway. I just don't think it's right.Next they'll be telling us what to do in our own yards. What subdivision are you talking about?Its funny that someone helping to make this law has a concrete company. Can you say conflict of interest!

The police can let other crime go while concentrating on giving subdivision tickets. Mayor, I thought you were against the speed cameras? But you're for something far more ridiculous. I have a feeling the board meetings may get interesting.

Police can enforce parking on street when certain pedophiles roam our streets free because of who they're parents are. Where's the justice?

It's a safety concern/road hazard. If everyone parked their cars on both sides of the streets on narrow two lane roads in subdivisions then that wouldn't leave much room to drive on the street would it?

I've driven in neighborhoods without driveways in other cities where you constantly have to drive in an S pattern just to get where you are going. And have to decide who has the right of way between two parked cars.

If East Tennessee was on flat ground this might not be too much of a problem but what if a car was parked on the side of the road just over a hill and when you got over the hill, it's suddenly there. BAMM!

If I lived in a subdivision I would not want to park my car on the side of the road. Unless I didn't care if it was sideswiped or a 10 year old kid on a bicycle wanted to scrape it with a key or squirt ketchup down the side of it. Kids are mean!

My main issue is the cities having too much control. I think they should look at each subdivision because not all are small streets. Don't paint the whole town with the same brush.

No the streets are not wide enough for three cars. Park in your driveway.
