Villagers who have called for extra villa parking might find their adhoc parking area sealed off.
Residents of the Sunnyside Villas in February appeared before the Community Development District 4 Board of Supervisors and vowed to circulate a petition calling for a formal parking area near a retention basin in the villa community.
CDD 4 supervisors, in a budget workshop Tuesday afternoon at Savannah Center, noted they have not received the petition from the Sunnyside Villas residents.
Residents continue to park at the retention basin.
CDD 4 Supervisor Cliff Wiener, a resident of the Village of Piedmont, said he has made 31 trips to check on the parking situation at the Sunnyside Villas, which are located in the Village of Woodbury. One of Wiener’s trips to the Sunnyside Villas occurred shortly before Tuesday’s meeting.
“The grass is getting destroyed,” Wiener told his fellow supervisors.
Undetered residents are continuing their practice of parking near the water retention basin off Sunnybrook Circle. Their pleas have won very little sympathy from the CDD 4 supervisors.
Quite the contrary, supervisors are looking at putting up a fence or concrete barrier to prevent parking at the retention pond.
“We have to do something. It’s our problem,” Wiener said.
Supervisor Don Deakin noted that the petition promised by the parking advocates has not materialized.
The board said that the residents who want the parking area should present their petition at the June meeting.
