About a year ago the residents of Meadow Hill Estates approached the City about the use of residential streets for parking during sporting events at Warren Park. The resolution at that time made tremendous strides, drastically reducing the amount of parking on our streets.
However, with the start of the new sports season it appears last year's resolution is losing effect as more patrons of the park are using the streets for parking, ignoring the signs and requirements of the City and the soccer association.
Would it be possible to have an officer patrol these streets, especially on Saturdays (they start early), requesting patrons of the park to use the designated parking within the sports complex?

Thanks for your note regarding concerns that you have with parking in residential areas near Warren Sports Complex.
On the times in which I have visited the Warren Sports Complex on various weekends, I had not noticed a problem with non residents of the neighboring areas near Warren Sports Complex either along North County Road or on Sunflower Way.
Even though the spring soccer season has concluded by the Frisco Soccer Association, I will make contact with them and make sure that prior to the fall season they re-emphasize the need for all participants, coaches and spectators park within the designated parking areas at Warren Sports Complex and that all illegally parked vehicles are subject to being ticketed.
I would, however, remind everyone that lives along a public street that if signage is not present that restricts parking, there is no violation that is occuring when someone parks along a public street.
I feel that the FSA has been pretty effective in the past to discourage the parking of vehicles along adjoining residential streets and believe that they will continue to try and reduce this activity.
Should you have any additional questions, please let me know.
