Pinecrest Road Neighborhood: Pinecrest north-side parking ban

letter from the City of Durham
  • 2005-10-27 MEETING TONIGHT at 6:30 PM in fire station #5 on Chapel Hill Road to discuss the potential parking signs with the acting fire chief. All interested residents and owners should consider coming, as this may be the last chance to set things going in a direction that will cause the least unhappiness.
  • 2005-10-01 The City of Durham says they will soon be forbidding parking on the north side of old Pinecrest, in an effort to allow fire engines to get through faster. (This will also no doubt aid the many morning commuters, who also use Pinecrest as the fastest route between Point A and Point B, to get to their respective fires.) Should we start an online petition about this? Some pictures showing the available space in the road (hover over thumbnails to see caption; click on thumbnail for larger picture):

Public Records Request

After an NC Public Records request, the following information was received, including a copy of the initial request. I have included all pages, many of which are from the Durham GIS - and somewhat outdated at that. I did not attempt OCR specifically so this public-but-personal information is not easily used for nefarious purposes. The 16 pages linked here comprise the entirety of the public records supplied, though astute observers may note other undocumented references.

Of particular interest to readers are the dates on these records; take note of which dates were added by computers and which were added by people.

  • What ever happened to speed humps? I gather that the current obstacle is funding. How do we keep updated on this so that we will have a petition ready when there's funding again?
