Cars left for weeks on Old Town streets, police told


The Park City Police Department last week received at least five complaints about vehicles being parked outside residences in Old Town for extended periods, an unusual concentration of that sort of report.

The cases included:

  • on Thursday, Jan. 3 on the 1300 block of Norfolk Avenue, when a van was reported to be parked on the street for the past two months. The police were told the van was not registered, but it was not clear from public police logs whether the reference to the registration involved a vehicle registration or City Hall’s Old Town parking program.
  • on Jan. 3 at 9:52 a.m., someone on an undisclosed block number of Park Avenue reported that a car was parked in front of a residence for three days.
  • on Jan. 3 at 9:08 a.m., someone on the 800 block of Empire Avenue contacted the police reporting that an Isuzu Trooper had been parked in front of a residence since August.
  • on Wednesday, Jan. 2 at 3:13 p.m., someone on the 300 block of Ontario Avenue told the police a dark blue van had been parked there for approximately one month.
  • on Tuesday, Jan. 1 at 10:24 p.m., the police received a report that a vehicle had been abandoned on Ridge Avenue.

    City Hall rules limit on-street parking to 72 hours across Park City. After 72 hours, officials are able to take action against a vehicle. Parking Services, which is tied to the Park City Public Works Department, said it receives few complaints about vehicles parked on public streets for extended periods.
