BCNA Special Event Parking Proposal 2017-05-12
Affected Neighborhoods Plan
While still in its formative stage, this program is intended to replace the existing barricade system. The objective of Special Event RPP, like the barricades, is to prevent over parking in the neighborhood during special events. It has the additional benefit of keeping Dawson and Bouldin open to all traffic and will be extended to Mary Street which helps address the over parking that was occurring South of the barricades on Gibson Street.
The following PDFs have been added to the Bouldincreek.org media library to facilitate discussion at Tuesday’s meeting related to the intention and benefits of adopting this tool.
Relevant Language from Section 25-2 of the City Code.

Will be interesting to see how this plays out in practice.
The idea is that a house on a corner lot can’t easily have a wrap-around porch because of lot-size limitations, so now the encroachment into the front setback (an encroachment which everyone who’s ever enjoyed a conversation on a shady porch with a neighbor can probably support) can wrap around to the side setback as well, encouraging a more “connected” style of home much like the traditional homes of yore.
Overall this seems like a good thing. But “what defines a porch?” will likely become the question. What do you think?
