Dear Greenbrae Residents,
I am writing to follow up on the post that you may have seen on NextDoor regarding on street parking in our community. The GPOA understands that, in today’s day and age, homeowners have multiple cars and some use their garage as an extra room or for storage space rather than to park their cars. In addition to the post on NextDoor, the GPOA has received complaints about cars being parked on the street repeatedly and/or for long periods of time. We also have received complaints that on street parking creates a safety hazard on some of the narrow streets in our neighborhood, which not only makes it difficult for cars to travel on these streets but also could present problems for emergency vehicles to get to their destination to provide needed services.
The GPOA reminds residents that the CCRs governing all homes in our community require residents to store their personal property–which includes cars–in the interior of buildings, i.e., in the garage. While we understand that times have changed since the CCRs were written, we urge residents to park their cars in their garage or their driveway rather than on the street. Doing so also could serve to protect against crimes of opportunity. We thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation.
Very truly yours,
