HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - Two items that deals with residential parking may be decided upon by Holland City Council members during tonight’s meeting.
One is the finalization of a pilot program for next summer that would allow overnight parking on certain streets in the Tulip City, which would run from May 15th through September 30th. Currently, overnight parking is prohibited on any Holland street, with some advocating lifting the ban to accomidate multi-vehicle families, while others wishing to keep the ban for safety and street maintenance purposes.Council would revisit the issue next fall to determine if this plan should be permanent.
The other is to better regulate the parking of property items such as upholstered furniture, appliances and construction materials on outdoor porches, yards and open carports. Some say that such items clutter residences, fester disease and crime, and lower property values for neighborhoods.
