New Rules For Game Day Neighborhood Parking In Gainesville
Published August 15th, 2013
Gator football game season is around the corner and the Gainesville City Commission will be implementing new rules for game day neighborhood parking.
The special events permit will cost a little over 50 dollars a season. Parking will be allowed from 8 in the morning to midnight or 3 hours after the game. All trash must be cleared by 6pm the day after the game. And if porta-potties are used, they must be removed by 6pm, two days after the game.
Gainesville City Commissioner said, Thomas Hawkins said, "The primary voice that we aired were of those folks who were interested in the game day activities, who love all the benefits that come with game day but sometimes go to late in the evening or has characteristics that are unsafe."
While one more vote is needed, it is expected that this will become the new ordinance for 2014. Violations of any of these new rules, can cost $250 in code enforcement fines.
