One thoughtful comment

  1. I think this amendment is absolutely ridiculous and constitutes government overreach. What is the harm in parking a vehicle inside a cul-de-sac next to your own house as long as the vehicle isnt blocking a fire hydrant or preventing anyone elses right of way? These decisions need to be left to the HOA (where applicable), not the city. The City does not own the roads, the People do. We pay taxes to use the roads, that use also constitutes parking on the road that WE pay for. Amendment 14 needs to be removed, or at a minimum, more narrowly defined to meet the requirements of why it was adopted.
