Jeffrey Freedman, who lives in Squirrel Hill, said he received a letter stating he may no longer park in his own driveway without facing a fine.
“We have been living in Squirrel Hill for almost 18 years and we have been parking in the driveway for the same amount of time,” Freedman said. “It does request that we go to the building inspector to get a certificate of occupancy.”
Councilman Corey O’Connor said people in his district have received $1,000 to $2,300 fines. He’s now working to get those citations and fines thrown out.
O’Conner said he also hopes to get the ordinance changed so that cars are only required to be 3-5 feet from the sidewalk.
