We’re 50 – Happy Anniversary Heritage Hill Association – 1968-2018

We are 50. Happy Anniversary Heritage Hill Association …. and they said it wouldn’t last.

We are planning to make every HHA event in our 50th year a celebration. We’ll give you updates as the year progresses but to kick it off here are the initial organizing minutes of a small group of people that began the discussion. The Association wasn’t formally founded until November of 1968 when the Articles of Incorporation were submitted.

We’d also like to hear your stories of the neighborhood over the last 50 years. If you’ve been here since the beginning or anytime throughout, send us a story about Heritage Hill. If you just moved in, you are keeping us vital so share your experience. It is all of us, our eclectic community that would not exist without the tenacity of a handful of people who started it all 5 decades ago — 75% of our houses were slated for demolition. And we continue to organize throughout all these years so that Heritage Hill is the place where we all want to be.

Join the celebration and the conversation. We’ll be sharing stories in the newsletter and we can post them on our website. Please email them to heritage@heritagehillweb.org.

Residential Permit Parking in Heritage Hill?

Residential Permit Parking in Heritage Hill????

 If you are frustrated trying to find on-street parking on your block during the day, you could benefit from Residential Permit Parking. It would limit parking on your street to the residents of your street. If there are too many residents for available spots, permit parking wouldn’t work for you but if the spots are taken by non-residents (students, hospital employees), it would.

The permit parking enforcement would generally be Monday-Friday: 8 am – 5 pm. That means that you would need to display a permit in your vehicle to park on the street during the enforcement time.

 Permit Fees:

In 2017, Permit Fees Permits currently cost $15 per six-month period or $30 for the year. Residents are allowed guest permits for $2 per permit with a maximum of 30 per six months.

How do I get it on my block:

You need to get 50% of your neighbors on your block to say they support Residential Permit Parking and the Heritage Hill Association will include your street in a proposed zone. The Association is not advocating for permits but it could be a solution to some of our neighborhood’s parking issues on some streets.

How you confirm neighbors support is up to you – a petition, an email thread? The Association just needs some documentation that neighbors support permit parking on a respective block.

Once we see what blocks want to have residential permit parking, we will need to comply with the following:

Zone Requirements.

The designation of a Residential Parking Permit Zone shall require the area to be, at a minimum:

  • 3 blocks in length; and
  • within 1,500 feet of a defined traffic generator (such as a hospital, educational institution, or commercial concern); and
  • the block faces in the area must be contiguous.

Residential Permit Parking:

  • Does not mean a guaranteed space in front of your house. A permit allows you to park on the street within the Residential Permit Parking zone.
  • Is open to all residents – tenants and homeowners. It restricts non-residents from parking in a Residential Permit Parking zone.
  • Is not enforced in the evening or weekends. Residential Permit Parking is only during the posted enforcement times. Currently the City enforces during daytime hours.
