One of the biggest issues facing Clifton Heights is the lack of parking. Even the full-time residents can find themselves walking blocks because there is no room for their car closer to home. With the university enrollment increasing year after year and the lack of driveways commonly found in the city, available parking is starting to become a thing of the past. Only during the holidays and summer seasons can one see clear down a street and behold the heavenly sight of several parking spaces.
With parking being one of the biggest issues in the community, what exactly are the rules? Who is overseeing this? Is there someone to contact if necessary? Parking in Clifton Heights is handled by the City of Cincinnat’s Parking Enforcment Officers. These individuals are authorized to perform an extensive range of enforcement actions such as parking meter violations, towing vehicles blocking dirveways or cars parked in truck loading zones, for which a citation is warranted. These Officers can be contacted if a car is parked for longer than 14 hours in one spot or an abandoned car is a nuisance. They have the authority to impound a vehicle for parking during peak hour restrictions or if a driver has multiple deliquent citations. The City has taken these steps to deal with the parking or lack of parking.
