District plans parking stalls for Copeland Avenue

In response to public request to solve parking issues on Copeland Avenue, the District is planning to put in angled parking stalls.

The District of Houston is planning to put angled parking at the end of North Copeland Avenue by the Community Garden.

Residents from that neighbourhood asked council in July to find a solution for the parking issues in that area, which also raised concerns about emergency vehicle access to Third Street homes.

“There’s not enough parking for the baseball diamond plus the Community Garden,” resident Harold Delege told council at a meeting July 22.

District staff met with residents and users of the Community Garden and developed a solution.

The parking stalls will angle east on the northeast side of Copeland Avenue, and a second access into the Community Garden parking lot will enable emergency vehicles to turn around.

Council directed staff to look at cost, develop a design and report back.

Chief Administrative Officer Michael Glavin says the project will likely be done next spring.
