 I don’t like the placement of the sign; can the NO Parking sign be moved?

In most cases the answer is no; however Deerfield Township will be happy to send out a representative to look into your request or recommendation.

What code are you following and how do you determine which side of the street is marked for NO Parking?

Warren County Code states that one side of the street be designated for NO Parking. Deerfield Township, just like many neighboring communities chooses the fire hydrant side, to ensure our emergency vehicles can respond and have access to the hydrants in an emergency situation.

Why is the cul-de-sac marked NO Parking?

The cul-de-sac is a continuation of that side of the street. It is done in order to maintain sufficient space for our emergency vehicles. Cul-de-sacs are designed to allow traffic to make a U-turn at a dead-end street. The typical residential roadway is 24-feet in width and many of our newer cul-de-sacs are approximately 80 feet in width. The minimum turning requirements for some of our fire apparatus requires that entire area to make a U-turn. Parking in a cul-de-sac also may interfere with access to fire hydrants, delivery from the U.S Postal Service, snow removal and is often times incompatible with driveways.

The reason for no parking in cul-de-sacs is to ensure safe passage for the emergency vehicles; the emergency vehicle must be able to access and get out of the cul-de-sac quickly. In some cases they may need to get more than one fire truck or a fire truck and two ambulances …etc. in a cul-de-sac.

How is the location of a NO Parking sign determined?

The NO Parking signs are typically placed on the property lines of homeowners. NO Parking signs are installed at a 30 to 45 degree angle and spaced based on the visibility to our traveling public.

Are all of Deerfield Township subdivisions going to be marked?

Yes, subdivisions will be posted as they are paved. Any neighborhood constructed after 2005 already has the NO Parking signs installed before they are accepted for maintenance by the County and Deerfield Township.

Who do I contact if I have any questions regarding the newly installed NO Parking sign?

Chip Cowan – 513-701-6978 is his direct line at the Deerfield Township main office.
