Large Vehicles


Neighborhood streets are not designed to support the weight and size of large commercial vehicles. Oversized vehicles create dangerous blind spots on narrow streets for pedestrians, bike riders, and motorists. The noise and emissions diminish quality of life.

Keep our neighborhood streets safe and legally park large commercial vehicles in commercial parking lots.
