CS Council Split Vote on Neighborhood Parking Ban

The College Station City Council was divided over extending a new no parking zone in a residential area.

There will be no parking on one side of Keefer Loop and Cullen Trail. This is in the Buena Vida subdivision along Rock Prairie Road west of Wellborn Road.

Two residents of nearby Tony Court wanted it extended because they believed their cul-de-sac will get the overflow, threatening children who play in the area.

Councilman James Benham agreed with the Tony Court request, noting the city’s Neighborhood Services Department had been contacted.

Councilman John Nichols was part of the 4-3 majority against expanding the no parking zone until all homeowners are contacted.
