CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) - The homeowners association in Chula Vista's Eastlake III Community backed off a set of proposed parking guidelines that has sparked outrage among residents.
Homeowners had pushed back on the plan that would have required residents to park in their garages first before parking on their driveway or their street. The new regulations would also have residents open to garage inspections conducted by the HOA’s management company to make sure rules were being followed.
Tuesday’s HOA meeting was packed with residents, and while media members were not allowed inside the meeting, several people told 10News there were nearly 200 people inside. An overwhelming number of them spoke out against the parking rules.
"It's a win, they listened," said resident Rebecca Niemiec, who was against the proposed parking rules. "They're striking the parking guidelines completely."
She said the HOA still planned to address the street parking issue but would come up with a plan in the future after they get community input.
