PRINT YOUR OWN VIOLATIONS AND STICK ON CARS

PRINT YOUR OWN VIOLATIONS

With many Las Vegas-area residents staying home as nonessential businesses are closed, curbside parking in and around neighborhoods has gone up — causing issues for some homeowners and spawning a mystery in one Henderson subdivision.

Some residents of a trio of gated neighborhoods in the Green Valley Ranch subdivision routinely park along Cozy Hill Circle when they have more vehicles than will fit in their driveways and garages.

Last week, white stickers could be seen stuck to windows on a line of vehicles parked on Cozy Hill stating: “Parking violation. Vehicle subject to immediate removal.

Unauthorized vehicles towed at owner’s expense.” The telephone number of the Henderson Police was printed at the bottom.

Though the sticker appears to be placed by the Henderson Police parking patrol, the department said it wasn’t aware such a sticker existed.

“The parking enforcement sticker you are inquiring about does not belong to the Henderson Police Department,” Katrina Farrell, Henderson Police spokeswoman, said in an email.

“We were unaware of the sticker’s existence; therefore permission was not provided for its use.”

Henderson Police deems its parking enforcement officers essential and they are operating during the state shutdown, but there have been no enforcement actions taken in the area where the stickers popped up, Farrell said.

Terra West Management Services, which serves as Green Valley Ranch’s homeowner’s association, said it didn’t issue those warnings either.

“We don’t put parking violation stickers on Cozy Hill because it’s a city-owned street,” said Kristina Pullen, administrative assistant and architectural coordinator for Terra West.

Terra West deals only with ungated communities in the area, where all the streets are considered city owned, so any parking enforcement on those streets would be via the city’s parking enforcement team, Pullen said.

So could a resident fed up with those who park on the street be to blame?

“Someone is obviously putting them on there that is a homeowner or something, because we can’t mark those,” Pullen said. “

A lot of people do complain about them parking there because that street, you can’t see that (well on) Cozy Hill.”

The three gated communities along that stretch of Cozy Hill are under the management of separate sub-homeowners associations and they do mark vehicles parked on the street in the communities overnight.

Pullen said she wasn’t aware if those companies were enforcing parking during the state shutdown.

Although the stickers were made without the police department’s approval, placing them is not illegal unless the sticker caused any noticeable damage to a vehicle, which then could be considered a criminal act.

“As far as what determines a crime would be any damage or loss sustained, like vandalism or injure/tamper motor vehicle,” Farrell said.

  1. I have a complaint about neighbors. It is a rental, 3 bedroom. They live in the middle of the block and have a 2 car garage and room for two cars on the street. They have 7 vehicles. Three regular sized cars, 1 suburban, and two longbed trucks, one of which is a work truck . There are at least 6 adults living in the house. Okay rant over.

      That will help you understand why someone would print their own stickers and put them on cars doesn’t it?
