Planning Commission gives HERE parking plan preliminary approval

Lawrence could use a second newspaper that has no hesitation to stand across from Liberty Valance.

Planning Commission gives HERE parking plan preliminary approval

I have no doubt HERE will comply with the correct number of parking spots so they can fill their vacancies. Even if they have the spots required what is stopping the HERE residents from continuing to park on the neighborhood streets?

What is stopping the HERE residents from finding a neighborhood spot and parking THERE?

You guys have it easy with only 624 bedrooms. Over here at Schwegler we are close to 2,000 coming and they already have a City Commission approved variance for less parking than required. KU was smart enough to force their parking problem past the commission before anyone from the community could react. (I say force because the threat from KU was all about taking residential front yards on 19th St if they didn't get their way in the matter). Nice neighbor.

Speed humps and traffic-calming circles to be installed in some Lawrence neighborhoods

Thanks for the help, not up on state rules. I have no argument with no parking and 25mph.

If there is no place to park on the street there is a lot less reason for those cars to be driving down that particular street or in the neighborhood. The traffic and speeding in the neighborhood comes from students looking for a free place to park. I am willing to try no parking 9am to 4pm M-F just like the KU neighborhood North of 15th St. West of the KU Bookstore. I can't use on street parking 9-4 M-F anyway because it is already FULL so please move the free parking aggravation and the traffic that comes into the neighborhood with it elsewhere. Use the bus? Park and Ride? Bicycle? Pay for a lot spot somewhere? Have a friend drop you off? Walk? The students would adapt just fine once they figure out free street parking in residential neighborhoods surrounding KU is restricted.

I would settle for 20mph and no parking just like the neighborhood adjacent to the old KU bookstore. Where is that option for every other KU neighborhood?

No street parking available means you don't have near the traffic and you won't need obstructions.

If you do not have street parking in a big enough perimeter around KU maybe the students will finally use the bus..............

Editorial: Parking progress

I'm sure KU will want to jump in and do their part, neighborly thing to do, community relations and all that stuff........................

City to develop its first comprehensive parking plan

Hopefully there will be some ideas presented that can help ease the increasing pressure on the neighborhoods surrounding KU. KU gets bigger and KU's parking shrinks but our neighborhood streets that KU uses as student parking lots have stayed the same size and are becoming increasingly busy.

Who is responsible for the overgrowth and recently planted dead trees along the barrier?
