Breck considering banning some parking

BRECKENRIDGE – The town of Breckenridge is proposing an amendment to its traffic code to prohibit parking motor vehicles on residential streets within the town limits.

The only exceptions to this rule would be under the following three conditions: if signs or street markings are present to allow parking; for temporary parking of construction vehicles if authorized by the chief of police – safety permitting; and for parking associated with a special event, if authorized by a permit.

This amendment to the code is being proposed because residential streets in town are not wide enough to allow on-street parking safely. If approved, the town will place signs at the major entrances to Breckenridge stating “parking prohibited on residential streets.”

This traffic code amendment passed first reading at the town council meeting Nov. 12. It is scheduled for public hearing and second reading Dec. 10.
