If you live near a school, you know that there is going to be a problem with people parking on your street. People in Kern Place deal with UTEP students, and all over El Paso, residents have to deal with parents and students parking along their streets. Lately, residents have been fighting to take their streets back.

People in the neighborhoods around Coronado High School told City officials that they need to have parking restrictions put in place by Resler Drive, Escondido Drive, Westwind Drive, Northwind Drive, and Cloudview Drive, during the hours of 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on school days. Residents say students park bumper to bumper and leave trash all over the place. They also say that their trash cans can't be accessed by trash trucks because of how tightly students park on the street, leaving no room for the trucks.

El Paso City Council will take up the issue today and vote on having a public hearing next week to let residents know about the proposed parking restrictions. If Council approves the public hearing, it will be held on June 16th.
