Apple Hill Residents: No On-Street Parking Allowed

Canonsburg Police Department want you to know that warnings and citations will be issued to those who are not compliant.

The ongoing issue of on-street parking in the Apple Hill plan was once again discussed by Canonsburg Council last week.

While parking on the streets is prohibited, many residents do so anyway, igniting arguments among neighbors and creating a "nightmare" for enforcement, especially when residents host parties or multiple visitors, borough officials said.

Council instructed Mayor David H. Rhome to install more “No On-Street Parking” signs in the plan and told the police to cite residents who disregard the signs.

Canonsburg police remind residents that if they are having a special event such as a birthday party that would require visitors to park on the street to alert the department from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The number is 724-745-8020.

SERIOUSLY???? This is what they are concerned about??????? How about the people that literally RACE through the plan on a daily basis?? There are lots of kids that live in Apple Hill, how about being concerned for their safety and ticket the speeders?? Parked cars don't hit our kids, speeding cars do! Wake up Canonsburg police dept.

maybe they should put parking meters up?! here is an idea tell everyone they can only have 3 cars over for steelers and penguins games too... Here is another idea... If a car is parked on the street for a long period of time then let then give that homeowner a warning. If a car is parked on the street in a snow storm and a truck cant get through or fire truck/ambulance...ok, thats an issue. If people are having a party for the 4th of July or a game....than whatever, welcome to America and Canonsburg is what we do here!

I hate pulling out of my driveway trying not to hit my neighbors cars. Theres really no reason residents should be parked on the streets as we all have garages and driveways except parties. However, their priorities are a bit ridiculous. How about waiting here from 7:30-9:30 am and ticketing the speed demons racing to work when our babies are at the bus stop. Much more of an issue if u ask me.

On street parking in Apple Hill is a HUGE problem and needs to be enforced! People tend to park on the street simply because they have more than one car and are too lazy to go out and move one car to get the other one out. There are times, more often than not, when we have a hard time getting in or out of our driveway because we are only left a "sliver" of space to get our car in and out. Not to mention that our mail has not been delivered on several occasions because our neighbors' cars have been parked in front of our mailbox! On street parking also just clutters up the neighborhood making our streets look more like a parking lot than a neighborhood.

have you tried discussing this issue with your neighbor or whoever is parking in front of your driveway?

Resident for 3+ years and the on-street parking has never been as issue near my house.

Who has parties M-F between 8 and 4? Not all get togethers are planned in advance either. I think it is obsurd that we have to call 911 during "off" hours. Use our tax dollars more productively!

have you tried discussing this issue with your neighbor or whoever is parking in front of your house/driveway? I would assume a situation which warrants calling 911 is serious enough to speak to your neighbor/fellow citizen about....

Parking on the street is the only way to get cars to slow down most of the time. I can appreciate the no parking on the street MOST of the time but the speeding through the plan is simply outrageous. I have spoken to the mayor personally about the speeding and he told me they would enforce but they never did. I know more residents that are concerned about the speed more than a car parked on the street. Let's enforce safety first and worry about a minor nuisance later.
Joe September 18, 2012 at 09:27 PM
Could not agree more.
Tera September 18, 2012 at 10:41 PM
I think it is crazy that we can't park on the street in front of our own home. I was saying that the "rule" is if you don't call the local department between their normal hours, you have to call 911 to request on street parking.

As long as this is enforced equally for the construction vehicles as well. Phase IV is a nightmare to get through some mornings thanks to F150s and worker's cars all over the place. I've had our neighbors park out front of our house for parties with no issues because they are all conciderate enough to leave enough space to get our vehicles in and out, but have had to squeeze out carefully or drive partly in our yard to avoid hitting some worker's car more the. a few times.

Hooks Lane is the worst for speeding! The Mayor tells me that his officers have monitored the situation on multiple occasions and found that it is not a problem. Many people probably do not realize how fast they are going and need to be reminded that the speed limit is 25 mph. Neighbors, unless you want speed bumps put in the plan, we all need to live together to make the neighborhood safe.

speed bumps cost money...they will never put them in Apple Hill....
