Agenda Report #


TO: Mayor and Council

SUBJECT: Parking Restriction on Chattsworth Court

INITIATED BY: Department of Engineering



Recommendation: Approve the attached ordinance that establishes a "No Parking Anytime" zone on Chattsworth Court.

Background: The Department of Engineering and the Columbus Police Department have received numerous complaints related to the trucking contractor servicing one of the businesses on Chattsworth Ct parking along the roadway and making it difficult for the businesses to operate. The parked trucks restrict visibility and access to the businesses. Several attempts have been made to resolve the issue between the businesses but have been unsuccessful. This has also been coordinated with the Chamber of Commerce Development Authority since it lies within Muscogee Technology Park.

Analysis: A "No Parking Anytime" zone is needed along both sides of Chattsworth Ct to retain proper sight distance and access.

Financial Considerations: All costs to fabricate and install the "No Parking Anytime" signs shall come from the Traffic Engineering Division's Operating Budget.

Projected Annual Fiscal Impact Statement: All cost to repair/replace vandalized or damaged signs shall come from the Traffic Engineering Division's Operating Budget.

Legal Considerations: All traffic ordinances require Council approval.

Recommendations/ Actions: Approve the proposed "No Parking Anytime" ordinance for Chattsworth Ct.
