City Council Discussing Monroe Parking


City Council will be holding at Special Meeting at 7:00 pm on Tuesday Nov. 12th before the regular Council Meeting to discuss Monroe St. parking signage. 
Council keeps putting this issue off. Action on permanent placement of signage should have been taken in July. Then a review was supposed to have been discussed in August. Then council said this would be discussed on Oct 22nd. Now the discussion has been pushed to Nov 12th, and any final decisions probably won't happen until after that. Please also send Council letters with your opinion on this issue.
Please attend the Nov 12th meeting.

Nov 12th - 7:00 pm 
Dearborn Administrative Center
16901 Michigan Ave, Dearborn, MI 48126

The Police Chief has issued a memorandum to City Council recommending that current signage remain in place.

SODA membership has expressed the this street parking is public use, this is our neighborhood and we would like to at least be allowed some input in this matter. Attracting businesses and customers to our neighborhood business districts should be a top priority. Anything that hinders customers, including the potential of parking tickets, does not have a positive impact on our neighborhood. The current signage is unevenly applied to the block and we also feel these signs solve a problem that never existed. To our knowledge, no resident ever filed a complaint about parking in the Monroe / Carlysle Business District, and these signs where only placed on public streets at business owners request.

Please attend the Nov 12th City Council  Meeting, have your voice heard.
