City Council to vote on no-parking zones

Blake Warman, Staff Reporter

The Charleston City Council plans to amend an ordinance to set specific no-parking zones on Tuesday.

The ordinance was originally on the agenda in September, but because of complications, members were unable to vote on the issue at the time, Mayor Larry Rennels said.

These no-parking zones would run from Eden Drive to 323 north on West Reynolds, and from Eden Drive to 277 north on East Reynolds.

The other no-parking zone would run on South Taylor from Ninth Street to 10th Street.

The council will also be voting on a proclamation to recognize the month of October as National NeighborWoods Month.

During the month, organizations all around the country work to improve communities by planting trees and forming coalitions dedicated to creating a higher quality of life.

Another topic up for discussion will be the approval of street closures for the annual Cub Scout Troop Cub-Mobile Race (Soap Box Derby).

Streets needed for closure to host this event are Eighth Street from Jackson Avenue to Van Buren Avenue. The event will take place from noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Finally, the council will discuss the authorization to issue a renewal of license agreement with the Charleston Water Fowl Association to use and regulate hunting activities at Lake Charleston.

This would then allow the Charleston Water Fowl Association to monitor all waterfowl hunting activities.

The council will also vote on the vacation of two alleys or streets near the Jefferson School District.

The council will meet 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in City Hall.
