Lower Greenville's best kept secret: Free parking

Updated 1/9/08 - Fear of scumbar patrons in LGNA-land drives call for business boycott - click here

Ever since neighborhood associations on Lower Greenville starting buying streets under the City's Resident Only Parking program, the two hottest questions heard from scumbar patrons have been...

What do you mean, they towed my friggin' car??

and

Where the hell am I supposed to park now?

Ever the one to provide a forum for important information about our wonderful neighborhood, BD has prepared a list of streets and a very easy to read map of free parking just a few steps away from Greenville Avenue.

Another Lower Greenville street goes Resident Only

The Belmont Neighborhood Association announced at its National Night Out event that 5700 block of La Vista, between Greenville and Matilda, will be the newest Resident Parking Only zone on Lower Greenville in nearly eight years.

The signs will be installed within two weeks; the new RPO zone will be combined with the RPO Zone on Hope Street. Click here to see a map. RPO will be enforced Tuesday - Sunday evenings, just like Hope Street.

RPO is a City of Dallas parking designation which allows only the residents of an RPO-zoned block to park on their street during certain days and hours.

A petition signed by more than 2/3rds of the property owners must be submitted before the City will survey the street for compliance with the ordinance's requirements.

Homeless person sought in Greenville Avenue rape

See related story - Delayed rape incident notification raises questions about LGNA's nonchalant attitude, DPD procedures

It's not unusual for the so-called Lower Greenville NA Crimewatch to hold back crime information from those not part of their little clique.

But it gets really bad when the DPD Central Division's ICP (Interactive Community Policing) officer holds back really important information from all the crimewatch groups and residents.

LGNA takes credit for new stop signs, lower crime rate and fresher smelling clothes

Normally BD does not read the wit and wisdom of the LGNA (aka the Mad Maxine Admiration Society) website, but a neighbor sent a link that we just had to read to believe.

We already knew how LGNA claims to care about anything that happens south of Belmont. Too bad most of their officers could not find their way south of Belmont without a map and a police escort. And we already know how they refuse to recognize Belmont NA and its decision (backed by 100+ neighbors) to secede from LGNA.

But now they have the unmitigated chutzpah to take credit for the installation of the new four-way traffic signs at the intersection of Matilda and Belmont.

DPD cop investigates bike accident, says BD needs permission to take his photo

There was a bike-vs-car accident on Thrusday evening at Bennett and Ross Avenues. Since BD had to go to the bank down the street, he grabbed a camera bag and drove to the scene. Shot about 20 photos of the scene in about 10 minutes.

BD will include those photos here. But that's not what this post is about.

It's about the DPD A&I (accident investigator) who arrived on the scene about ten minutes later. Immediately upon his arrival, the attitude of the already on-scene officers changes. One officer tells BD he needs to move way back, like way up on the CVS pharmacy parking lot, 'cuz really, he already took alot of photos. BD eventually got to stand his ground on the sidewalk, but only after the intervention of another officer who did not have an attitude. That officer stated the A&I told him to make BD back up (and we have that on tape).
