Last Tuesday night, the Northwood Civic Association heard a zoning case for a driveway on Harrison Street and discussed how to report illegally parked trucks.

The homeowner at 1204 Harrison St. is set to have a zoning hearing on March 28 at 9:30 a.m. in regard to adding a driveway on the side of the house. The owner of the house told the civic association that she had delivered letters to neighbors on the street with her intention of adding the driveway and did not receive opposition to her plans. She states the city wants her to do a variance for the driveway. She invited those to attend the zoning hearing if they would like to voice any objection to the driveway.

A member of the civic association delivered a speech in regard to reporting illegally parked trucks. Several members of the civic expressed concern with the issue and were happy to hear the steps he recommended in addressing the matter when it occurs. He also made clear that when you are reporting these illegally parked trucks, you don’t have to give your name and it will remain anonymous.
