Q. I am curious about parking regulations on cul de sac's here in Juneau. It is my understanding that on a typical street, the parking in front of a person's house (assuming there is no 'no parking' sign) is for the residents of that house, unless otherwise discussed between neighbors. What about on a cul de sac? I live in a cul de sac where my driveway is inaccessible in the winter due to it's decline from the street level, but even in the summer, only one car will park there and the other in front of the house on the street. It is very frustrating when 'visitors' of other neighbors occupy the space in front of my home. I don't want to start a debate with my neighbors before I have all the facts.
Thank you


Dear Juneau Resident,

Sorry, you are not going to like this answer. Public parking places like the ones you described are available on a first come, first served basis. Private homes do not have a claim to nearby public spaces. The controlling government agency, city or state, does have the ability to issue permits for things like construction access, jury service, legislative service, and more but those do not apply to your situation. Now if someone takes the spaces and keeps it by basically abandoning the vehicle they can be cited for using the streets for vehicle storage.
