Request For "No Parking" Zone

Randy Vermeulen from D & E Music requests a no parking area on the curb between 117 South Lawler St. and the Daily Republic Parking lot. This area is too short to park a car in, as which a car blocks some of the D & E Music driveway and makes it very narrow to turn into the Daily Republic's parking lot. D & E is concerned that someone in their parking spot is going to not notice a car partially parked behind them and back into them.
