Summary

The City is amending Chapter 71 of our Code of Ordinances relating to parking on city streets by adding no parking zones along a portion of Heatherwilde Boulevard immediately north of Cheyenne Valley Drive and south of the Pflugerville City Limits. Vehicles parked in these areas today reduce safety by inhibiting the sight lines of drivers turning onto Heatherwilde Boulevard at the Cheyenne Valley Drive intersection and present a roadside hazard to northbound and southbound Heatherwilde drivers.

This ordinance is supported by the adjacent Westchester Woods Apartment complex management and the Pflugerville Police Department. If this ordinance is not passed, vehicles will continue to be parked along this arterial roadway.

A map depicting the no parking zones on both sides of Heatherwilde Boulevard is attached to this item.

 

This ordinance has been approved by the City Attorney as to form.

Fiscal Impact

None.
