Belleville is taking steps to regulate front yard parking in the urban residential areas.
Maureen Barton of Foster Ave. told the city’s Planning Committee last night that tenants at an apartment building across the street from her park four vehicles on the front yard, are obnoxious and difficult, and affect her quality of life.
The city’s Planning Committee will recommend that City Council amend the zoning bylaws, restricting front yard parking.
Driveway width would be limited to 6 m to accommodate two car-widths side-by-side for smaller frontage, or 50% of the frontage of a lot width greater than 12 m.
If approved, it will not affect parking already in place, such as the issue on Foster Ave.
