Attention West Homestead Residents:  On January 14, 2014 West Homestead Borough Council voted to approve Ordinance #680, prohibiting parking in certain locations, certain days and hours.

Roads affected by this ordinance include the following: Laurel Hill, Sullivan, Dogwood, Breezewood, Lynnwood, Manorwood, Pinewood, Overdale, Daniel, Cascade, Revenue. Fieldstone, Edgewood, Gates Park, Schauffler, Longview, Brierwood.

The Ordinance states that vehicles on the above streets cannot park on the street between the hours of 10:00pm and 6:00am during daylight savings time, and between the hours of 11:00pm and 7:00am during standard time. During these times, all vehicles must be parked in the driveway area of the dwelling in which the owner or operator of said vehicle either resides or is visiting.

Special permits are available at the Borough building for those that must park on the street due to unavailable car space in their driveways. Permits will be issued for the following reasons:

1. Lack of appropriate driveway or parking pad space upon which to park all registered vehicles of residents at said address.
2. Visitors staying with a resident for a period not exceeding one (1) week. 
3. Special events such as a social gathering, holiday party, graduation party, etc.

Vehicles are prohibited to park on the grassy area surrounding or abutting a structure on the designated thoroughfares, or on any other surface on said real property that has not been approved by the Borough.
