We have a visitor parking issue in our building that hasn't been resolved.An elderly owner-resident has her grandson overnight once a week, so he can take her for medical-physio the following afternoon-so he parks in visitor parking for about 20 hours. There are only 3 parking spots there, so there are some complaints.

What can be done to stop him parking there? There's not a lot of legal off-street parking in the area, often requiring a 5 to 10 minute walk to the apartment building.

Hi Bmarr, sorry but I don't see the problem. I understand your grief with few visitors parking spaces available but in my view he is a visitor. The visitor parking is for visitors. How many other visitors do you have on that one night a week? I am in a block of 28 with 5 visitor spots and it is rare for even 2 of them to be filled on the same night. Do you have a disabled parking spot that perhaps the OC would allow them to use? If not, and you do have a lot of visitors on that one night surely some consideration could be given to an elderly person in need of help? I would prefer an able bodied person walk the 5-10 minutes to the building than force a person with health issues to do so.
