Town of Herndon considers parking permit zone on Leona Lane

Residents of Leona Lane in Herndon are seeking the town’s help to rectify long-term parking issues in the area.

The neighborhood is constrained by limited curbside parking, limited space for emergency vehicles, sight line issues, and trash and litter, according to residents. They also say they’ve had trouble getting town services like trash, recycling, and snow and leaf removal.

After investigating the matter, Town Manager Bill Ashton II said he discovered residents of an adjacent neighborhood have been taking up most of the available parking space along Leona Lane from the intersection with Marjorie Lane and its associated cul-de-sac.

An April petition from the Runnymede Manor Homeowners’ Association with 14 signatures made its way to the town, asking officials to consider creating a residential parking permit zone on Leona Lane. The Herndon Town Council is considering the proposal — which would restrict parking from midnight to 7 a.m. daily — at a meeting tomorrow (Tuesday).

“Staff will work with the homeowners to implement the program in the affected areas and will watch carefully to determine if additional action should be taken,” Ashton wrote in a statement.

The town’s engineering staff found that restricting parking is necessary for safety reasons. They recommended removing 13 spaces to improve sight lines and access for emergency vehicles as part of the parking zone.

The implementation of the parking zone is the first planned step in rectifying ongoing issues in the neighborhood.

Ashton said town staff will monitor the area to determine if implementing parking restrictions shuffles issues to another section of Leona Lane.

The zone would only apply to Leona Lane from its intersection with Marjorie Lane to the cul-de-sac where Leona ends.

A vote is expected on June 14.
