Oversized Vehicle Parking Restrictions Coming to Downtown

Oversized Vehicle parking in Downtown Boulder City, NVEver drive up Nevada Way through Downtown Boulder City and have to edge over into the oncoming traffic lane to sneak around a parked car or truck sticking out beyond their parking space? Well, the Oversized Vehicle Parking Plan is going to address that in the coming months. Here’s the dealio:

You’ll soon see the posting of signs and new stripes painted at the edge of each direction’s “travel lane” to indicate where the end of the diagonal twenty-foot parking space is and hence, where your bumper shouldn’t be beyond. Vehicles longer than twenty feet will no longer be permitted to park in these spaces because they would extend into the traffic lane. And if they do, it’ll sadly mean a parking ticket! The Community Development Department says that pretty much all other areas in the downtown are suitable for oversized vehicles…so that’s where cars and trucks longer than 20 feet can park.

Fan Brok Armantrout, Director of the Community Development Department, told me that because this will be a new parking restriction and they don’t want unsuspecting folks to be penalized by a sudden change, there will be an enforcement grace period through the end of December and ticketing won’t begin until 2013. Informational flyers will also be provided to the businesses in the affected area to help get the word out (and it was in the Boulder City Review a couple of weeks ago). And of course – I’ll put out a reminder here, as well!
