Parking woes continue

Posted by Dave on April 20, 2001 at 13:53:29:


I posted to this board some time ago about parking problems in my complex. That time it was about the number of spaces available (roughly 15 spaces located smack dab in the middle of 6 buildings) the problem is the building I am in only has access to this one lot, otherwise we will be forced to park hundreds of feet away.

Take away one handicapped spot for an elderly resident and one for this abandoned POS and that leaves 13 spaces for 8 apartments plus whomever else decides to park in our lot. The office is not legally obligated to enstate and enforce reserved parking according to information gained in my last post nor have they exercised enough clout with our local town to approve more parking.

The main issue is another resident. This resident has seen fit to basically abandon a car in our lot while still having two other vehicles. The vehicle has not been on the road in literally almost a year. The vehicle has not moved one inch in that time. The plates are still on it although it is not on the "road". Not sure what the registration says at this point.

I have repeatedly made calls to the complex managers (yes I'm on my second manager at this point, I call roughly twice a month but at least once) and yet to have resolution, or even know if the resident is taking my requests seriously. I think the office is basically putting me off to avoid a confrontation and ill will. Am I wrong in thinking that it is not my job to confront this resident about the problem? I think that as the managers it's their job to resolve issues such as this.

Would checking local ordinances about parked cars be helpful? If I find information proving that a local ordinance was being broken would the office have to comply and take action? I'll also be checking my lease to see if I have a clause about stored cars. Anything at all because I am pissed at how rude my neighbor is being. Basically I am asking for some tips and advice or at least some condolences. :o( Anything else that might be helpful? It's upsetting to pay a big chunk of my salary every month for rent only to come home and not have a parking spot. Thanks.
