Private "no parking" signs are being put up to keep others from using public parking spaces.
ABC7 news reporter David Louie was in Redwood City Wednesday.
He says Redwood Oaks is ground zero for this dispute.
Residents of a @RedwoodCity neighborhood have laid claim to the public parking in front of their homes, erecting their own no parking & tow away signs and setting out orange cones. Critics say it’s unfair & an eyesore. At 4/6pm. #abc7now pic.twitter.com/GU43QKJeKv— David Louie (@abc7david) March 27, 2019
The neighborhood is filled with duplexes and triplexes and a few single-family homes.
Garages are being used for storage instead of vehicles, and each household seems to have multiple cars.
This makes for intense competition for street parking.
We reached out to Redwood City Police to ask how quickly this neighborhood dispute can be resolved, but haven't gotten a response yet.
