Parking On The Harborside

EG Parking Wars

Nice to wake up Thursday morning and see every vehicle parked on the south side of King Street with a parking ticket. I must have missed the "two hour only parking" sign.  

Interesting this is enforced on the last day of January in the middle of the night during a rain/ wind storm when the only cars parked on the street belong to the renters that live in the Harborside.

I can’t seem to recall seeing any vehicles parked on King Street being chalked in the summer months. It be nice if the ordinances that impact quality of life like absurdly loud motorcycles at 1 a.m. in the summer months were enforced as vigorously as two-hour parking in the winter.

Frenchtown road...I think your comment re: lawless may be better directed to the hill people. Seems they have a problem with port o potties being flipped over. Harborside4life/ EG student. I share your frustration. I have lived on King St for the past six months and have never had an issue in terms of parking. Then out of nowhere the whole street gets ticketed without warning/ notice. Some better signage is in order. Maybe EG is planning on getting some big acts in here for the summer concert series and needs the extra revenue.

Wow, some strong feelings out there...I think most of us would agree that we need confirmation of what the parking laws are downtown so we can ALL enjoy living in the area, and/or patronizing the businesses without fear of being ticketed. The overnight parking map appears to show only one side of King St has restrictions (?)- http://www.eastgreenwichri.com/Portals/0/Uploads/Documents/Town%20clerk/overnight_parking_map.pdf
