Last fall the City of Columbus posted no-parking signs in about nine Columbus alleys. The city said it made the changes after German Village residents, as well as emergency services and refuse trucks, expressed concern about illegal parking, especially in alleys where garage doors were blocked.
When parking officials presented their plan to the Board of Trustees last spring, they said all of the alleys identified had been measured, and all by code were no-parking areas anyway – they had just never had posted signs.
Since the signs went up in October, several residents have been displaced. A grassroots group of volunteers working through the Civic Relations Committee is now trying to find out just how many cars were displaced when the signs went up.
