Council Votes to Restrict Parking Near Queen City-Georgia Intersection

NORFOLK - Some residents of new duplexes on Queen City Boulevard and their guests will have to find other places to park their vehicles following action taken by the Norfolk City Council at its meeting Monday.  Police Chief Bill Mizner told council members that his office had received several complaints of traffic congestion at the intersection of Queen City and Georgia Avenue.  Vehicles had been parked on both sides of the street creating bottlenecks, especially for vehicles turning south from Georgia Ave. onto Queen City.  Mizner told the council that a subcommittee had recommended not allowing parking on either side of Queen City Boulevard from the Georgia Avenue intersection to 100 feet south.  Council members voted unanimously to approve the recommendation.
