Ugh.Cars on Lawn

I was out for a walk with my dog tonight on the west side of Alexandria and after passing through a few alleys saw cars parked where lawn chairs should be. It is a city ordinance in Alexandria that this can't be done. The ordinance protects local property values (the ordinance states that at single and two-family dwellings, cars and trucks weighing less than 9,000 pounds must be parked on driveway areas surfaced with tar, concrete or a gravel surface that controls dust and drainage.). After a snap a photo of the offender with my Treo and email it to the city to pass on the offender's address, a polite warning letter will be sent to the home owner. In this case, I am proud to be a snitch. Lawn parking is one those things that has the opposite affect of parks in urban areas. Maybe that is a bad analogy but I think you probably understand my point.

I agree it looks tacky and should not be something that is just common place in any community. It makes the neighborhood look bad and I applaud you for doing your job. Nice job!@
