Snow Parking Zone
Generally speaking, I am not a fan of home owners associations. They do little more than collect money and tell you what you can or cannot do with your personal property like how big a Christmas lights display you have or what color you are allowed to paint the shutters on your home. This, however, is actually an idea that I like.
I live in a townhouse complex here in Bowie. Each home has two assigned parking spaces. We have a handful of unassigned visitors parking spaces. This works out pretty well for all of us, unless somebody in the neighborhood has a large number of visitors.
One of the issues we have in our lot occurs whenever there is plowable snow. There simply is no place for the plow drivers to pile up the snow. The "snow parking zone" helps to alleviate the issue. This particular complex has taken two visitors parking spaces and designated those spaces for the plow drivers to pile up the snow.
