Quincy residents get chance to speak on city parking ordinance

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Residents living near Quincy's north side will soon have another chance to voice their opinion on a new controversial city ordinance.

Just last month the Quincy City Council passed an ordinance that would make it illegal to park on the south side of Locust Street between 4th and 5th streets, because of the high amount of truck traffic and for various safety reasons.

But after city aldermen got complaints from residents, they decided to take the ordinance back to the traffic commission committee.

"It just kind of sucks, the closest place we're going to be able to park is a half a block away from our house and other neighbors are going to be the same way we can't park along 4th street either, so it's going to be a little difficult," neighborhood resident Brandon Boden said.

The no parking signs have since been taken down and you will not be ticketed for parking in that area.

Quincy's traffic commission committee will be holding another meeting for the public to voice their opinions on February 11 at 6:30 p.m. in city hall.
