Tucked away on the west side of the small town of Broad Channel in the middle of Jamiaca Bay is a narrow, dead end, street that goes by the name of West 12th Road. Those of us who live there know that the nice part about living in a small town is that when you are not quite sure what is going on, someone else always does!
[Peter J. Mahon West 12th Road, Broad Channel]
.West 12th Road is closed to all vehicular traffic with a standing "no parking" proscription on both the north and south sides of the street.
The contractor has unofficially agreed to allow West 12th residents to to enter upon and park their personal vehicles after work has been completed on the street each day with the proviso that all such vehicles parked overnight on W12th Road be removed prior to the start of the contractors next work day, no later than 7 am the next work-day morning (Monday - Friday).
There have been several instances of West 12th Road residents parking their vehicles on the street overnight and failing to remove them by 7 am the next work day morning requiring the contractor to advise all W12th Road residents of the problem and request that they remove their cars prior to 7 am.
Unfortunately, there continues to be instances of residents failing to remove their vehicles from the block by the required 7 am time frame.
The continued presence of these parked vehicles on the street during contractor work hours (after 7 am) has been impeding the contractor's set up process and work schedule for that day.
If this problem persists, the contractor has indicated he will have no option other than to discontinue the less restrictive "unofficial" parking regulations and revert to the "official" policy, completely closing off West 12th Road to avoid any further impediments or delays to street work. Solution Please...give the contractor (and your neighbors) a break...if you park your car on the street overnight during the work week, make sure the car is relocated off W12th Road no later than 7 am the next morning.
