PLEASE Respect Private Driveways and Narrow Side Streets When Moving Your Cars!!! The parking crunch during weeks of townhome concrete repairs and repaving has its frustrations. Abaris and the Board have tried to accommodate the overflow as best as possible. Here’s an overview of where to park and where NOT to park:
- Residents may not be aware that some of the small circles of detached homes are PRIVATE DRIVEWAYS. The residents of each of these small circles must maintain their own paving and cement work. PLEASE respect the circles and do not park there. These private circles include 10-11 Watchwater Way; 20-23 Watchwater Way; 15-18 Welwyn Way; 23-25 Welwyn Way; the detached homes in the 500 NME Block; and 701-705 New Mark Esplanade.
- Abaris has arranged with the city to allow parking ALL ALONG New Mark Esplanade on what would be the LEFT side when entering the Esplanade at the Totem Pole. This has been referred to in past communications as the LAKE SIDE to clarify which side you can park on, but applies to the entire left side of New Mark Esplanade, not just along the lake.
- Please consider parking in the Clubhouse Parking lot or in the un-reserved spaces in parking lots that are not being worked on.
- Parking is also allowed along other city streets with names other than New Mark Esplanade unless there are “no parking” signs there. But PLEASErespect the narrow width of those streets. We’re told that garbage trucks had problems getting through on Watchwater Way during recent days due to parking on both sides of that street. Also, please don’t block access to driveways, which could result in towing by the city.
Residents who have questions regarding this project should direct them to our property manager, Shireen Ambush at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not approach the construction crews that are working on the property while the work is in progress and steer clear of the areas where active construction is taking place for your own safety. We thank all residents for their patience and cooperation while we undergo one of the largest capital replacement project in the history of New Mark Commons and we all look forward its smooth and successful completion!
