Tar Heel Companies will relax the "conspicuous damage" portion of its new parking requirements at Abbey Court Condomiumiums.
In a story in Wednesday's News & Observer, President Ken Lucas says the media has overemphasized that part of the new policy, which management implemented two weeks ago to reduce crowding at the complex on Jones Ferry Road. (Read a resident's support for the new policy here."
The Old Well Homeowners Association dba Abbey Court Condominiums responding to criticism from media sources and officials of the Town of Carrboro regarding the parking policy at Abbey Court Condominiums emphasizes that the rules regarding appearance of vehicles has been relaxed. The decision to do so was made more than a week ago. However, continuing media coverage of the towing policy emphasizes the appearance issue as the main source of objections.
Kenneth A. Lucas, President and CEO of The Tar Heel Companies of North Carolina, Inc., managing agent for Abbey Court stated “We would ask that anyone who has been denied a parking permit due to a vehicle appearance issue revisit the office at Abbey Court. We will be reassessing any vehicle that has been previously denied due to an appearance issue. The policy regarding the need for vehicles to be properly registered to residents remains unchanged.”
Those seeking parking permits will still need to provide appropriate documentation that they are a leaseholder or authorized occupant at Abbey Court Condominiums along with registration information on each vehicle. Rules limit the number of parking permits that can be issued to each condominium to two per two bedroom condominium and three per three bedroom condominium. Lucas further stated “Many that have been denied stickers are not leaseholders nor authorized occupants. We must remember that more than 212 residents have been issued permits and feedback from those residents has been very positive.”
