Groveport to Enforce Parking Restrictions

Over the past several months, Groveport City Council has been considering a proposal to enforce parking restrictions in all neighborhoods of the City through the painting of curbs in sections of every street where parking is prohibited.  After much discussion, Council determined that the best route would be to simply erect “No Parking” signs at certain locations.  It also agreed that more steps must be taken to enforce existing parking restrictions according to Section 351.03 of the Codified Ordinances of The City of Groveport.

In particular, residents should be aware that parking is prohibited in the following:

  • Within 10 feet of a fire hydrant
  • On a crosswalk
  • Within 20 feet of a crosswalk at an intersection
  • Within 30 feet of, and upon the approach to, any flashing beacon, stop sign or traffic control device
  • At any place where signs prohibit stopping, standing or parking, or where the curbing or street is painted yellow, or at any place in excess of the maximum time limited by signs.

Violations of these restrictions are considered a minor misdemeanor.  Repeated offenses will result in higher penalties.

Groveport City Council hopes that these measures will ensure greater public safety and will further enhance the quality of life on every street in every neighborhood of the City.
