Parking at the Con - IMPORTANT
« on: Jun 08, 2006, 03:35:10 PM »
From a post by Randi & Cruzilla on PBB:

PARKING BY THE ROAD
The problem is that folks have not been exercising it... so the County is putting more structure down, as in signs. By the end of June, there will be signs up top defining where it is legal to park, and where not. Sadly, our hobby brough this on itself.

PARKING BY THE BASE OF THE DAM
This is not currently in scope for change, but please don't be stupid. Destruction of vegetation could get it closed... and some of the parking that I have seen makes it hard to pack vehicles in. If you are the first few tow wagons and trailers in place, it may feel like there's all the room in the world, but by the end of most weekends, this area will be jam-packed... please park to maximize usage.

PARKING BY THE CHALET
The Forest Service is willing for us to use the gravel pad next to the Chalet as long as we don't block access to the helipad. Block it, and we lose access -- it is that simple. The same comments apply about parking to maximize usage. One thing about the lot next to the Chalet, if you block the Helipad, don't expect to see your rig there when you get out. The FS is serious about towing there. In summer, Chalet renters have exclusive rights to use the paved parking area around the Chalet. In other words, if you are not renting the Chalet, you can be ticketed and towed. Winter use is less defined, but the USFS prioritizes parking here for non-motorized users

ENFORCEMENT
The County is going to be getting serious about enforcing parking after the signs go up, and the Forest Service is already serious about it, as folks who got tickets last year can attest. To this, I'd like to suggest a peer enforcement policy, mostly for the 'don't be stupid, park to maximize usage thought. If you see somebody parked haphazardly, blocking off three spots, post up a picture! While they may not be ticketable, they deserve some raspberries from the folks they parked out (or parked in -- I have seen that before, as well!).
