INMAN PARK — The city's public works department says residents of Colquitt Avenue NE could learn by early April if their application for residents-only parking will be approved.
"This application is still in process," spokeswoman Valerie Bell-Smith told East Atlanta Patch. "We are completing traffic studies associated with the request.
"Once all studies are complete a recommendation will be sent the neighborhood advising them of our findings and whether or not their application is approved. We expect to have the response completed by early April 2012."
Colquitt Avenue homeowners created a plan that mandates residents-only parking from 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. daily.
Residents saw it as a compromise with businesses in Little Five Points that opposed the restrictions.
Colquitt stretches from Euclid to North Highland avenues, but it's narrow and has parking only on one side.
Because they don't have parking restrictions, residents say they get the brunt of visitors seeking to avoid on-street metered parking and the pay lots.
