Description

I own the house on the corner of Veatch and Paggi, opposite the WFJrH football field. I welcome the sports teams that have daily practices, and enjoy the spirit and hard work of both children and coaches. However, I find the parking signs in the neighborhood, particularly the last block of Veatch St., are routinely and consistently ignored. This seems to be a hazard, especially at the end of practice or games when there are crowds leaving and the roads are constricted. Moreover, there seems to be little attempt by police patrols to enforce the parking laws. I would welcome some warnings and/or ticketing of cars if warnings have no effect so that the parking signs are obeyed. Finally, there is parking on the grass upper field near the Jr. High, which seems to me to be dangerous at night as it is poorly lit and parking is unregulated. I think the village and school disctrict might consider the liability risk should a vehicle/pedestrian accident occur.
