New Port Richey residents can speak out on parking proposal


Public can speak out on parking plan

Citizens can weigh in Tuesday night on a controversial proposal that would fine people for blocking parts of the sidewalks with their parked cars. The proposal, which the Pasco County Commission first heard in October, had come as a response to complaints, many of them from disabled residents, who had spoken about the difficulties in trying to maneuver around cars parked at the ends of driveways and hanging out into the sidewalk. But commissioners put off the first public hearing until January amid concerns that the Sheriff's Office lacked manpower to enforce the provisions and that the proposal would punish people in older west Pasco subdivisions where short driveways are a consequence of houses being built on very small lots. The public hearing begins at 6:30 p.m. at the West Pasco Government Center on 7530 Little Road. If commissioners proceed to a second hearing, it is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Feb. 9 at the historic courthouse in Dade City.
