Restrictive Parking Program
In an effort to deter prohibited parking in accordance with the Clayton County Code of Ordinances, The Board of Commissioner’s approved a Restrictive Parking Program during their Regular Business Meeting of February 10, 2016 via Resolution No. 2016-17. This program addresses the dangers and negative aesthetic impact of improperly parked vehicles on the rights-of-ways of roads, streets, thoroughfares, and other avenues of travel in the unincorporated areas of Clayton County. The process consists of submitting a petition requesting the placement of parking related signage. The petition process shall require a minimum of a ½ mile segment of street frontage or a full street, if the street is less than a ½ mile in length. The Program requires the Property Owner’s to fund the initial cost of signs with a 75% approval from Property Owner’s in the impacted area.
You may complete an online request form (Click Here) or contact the office at 770-477-3674 to request a petition.
Once request is received, Transportation and Development Creates a Plan for the requested area that satisfies the enforcement requirements of the Clayton County Police Department.
Clayton County staff begins the petition process including:
- Determine sign quantity and associated cost.
- Define number of property owners necessary to meet 75% approval certification.
- Create No Parking Restriction Petition.
County provides the Petition package to requestor.
HOA or requestor returns the completed petition to Clayton County Department of Transportation and Development for property owner certification. If 75% or more verified property owners have signed the petition, proceed to step 5. If less than 75% of verified property owners have signed the petition, modifications to the desired area can be considered, however the process starts over with Step 2.
Clayton County staff will advise citizen upon meeting the petition requirements to submit payment for sign fabrication and installation.
After all payments are received and certified, Clayton County will begin fabrication and installation of No Parking signage per the sign placement design.
