Residents are encouraged to have no more vehicles than the number of licensed drivers in the household. Each residence has one designated parking space.
RESERVED SPOTS: It is the responsibility of the homeowner/tenant to ensure that tenants/guests do not park in someone else's reserved spot. Unless permission has been granted by the resident associated with the reserved parking space, any vehicles parked in a reserved space that is not associated to the resident homeowner will be towed at the vehicle owners expense. For vehicles that are not authorized to park in a Reserved spot, an attempt will be made to notify the community via Nextdoor.com. It is strongly suggested that all residents notify tenants to sign up for Nextdoor.com so that they may receive cluster news and notifications. Failure to move the vehicle after the notification has been posted will result in the towing of the vehicle at the owners expense.
The bylaws prohibit overnight parking of the following:
Vehicles without proper registration or inspection
Commercial vehicles having promotional words or numbers on their sides
Gross weight exceeding 6,600 pounds
Seemingly abandoned vehicles
Vehicles parked in fire lanes are a safety hazard to the community and subject to ticketing by the police and towing.
Towing initiated by the cluster should not take place until a good-faith effort has failed to identify the owner of the illegally parked vehicle. It is recommended that FECA Board members initiate this procedure whenever possible, preferably one who lives on your street, although any board member may be contacted (Contact information is listed in "Contacts"). When you contact a board member please be prepared to give the following information:
parking spot number
make and model
color of the car
license plate number and state
approximate time vehicle has been parked illegally
