It’s the responsibility of a Homeowners Association to ensure that parking lots within their community are as safe as possible at all times. Many different factors impact the safety and accessibility of parking lots. The following guide walks you through a few things to keep in mind when considering the maintenance of your HOA parking lot.
Clearly Marking a HOA Parking Lot
When someone comes to park in the parking lot, it’s important that everything is clearly marked. These markings include ensuring handicap accessible places are easy to spot. Additionally, fire lanes must be properly designated, so no one parks in them creating a safety risk. Finally, ensure guest parking is well marked so guests do not park in the residents’ designated parking spots.
Enforcement of Parking Rules
All parking lots need to have rules in place to ensure the safety and convenience of those using the lot. Rules must be clearly stated on signs so that it is apparent what the community expectations are. The HOA needs to enforce the rules if someone disobeys them. Consider hiring a towing company to come to the lot to check it regularly if violations are common. Towing improperly parked vehicles ensures there is always ample parking available for residents.
Regular Parking Lot Maintenance is Important
When people walk through the parking lot, their safety is of the utmost importance. Maintaining the parking lot is the responsibility of the HOA. Repair cracks and fill potholes to reduce chances of an accident happening. It’s also a good idea to have the asphalt sealed every few years to ensure that it withstands the wear and tear of cars and the elements.
