Parking ban for two Albany neighborhoods

City commissioners approve a ban on parking cars in yards in two Albany neighborhoods.

The 1700 block of Marbury Lane and the 2000 block of Lullwater Road were the first two areas to request the ban. Not everyone in those neighborhoods likes the policy.

"Well really, you can see that the driveway is not large enough to park all your vehicles right here,” said Calvin Buchanan, Resident. “You have to park them somewhere and I feel safer with mines in my yard than out there side the road."

This is the first time any area has taken advantage of a new city ordinance that allows a majority of residents in a neighborhood to request that the city prohibit yard parking.
