DeKALB – An ordinance implementing the third phase of the Safe Streets Initiative will have a first reading vote during Monday’s City Council meeting.

This phase would establish no-parking zones from 2 to 6 a.m. in a section west of North Annie Glidden Road along West Hillcrest Drive.

The area is adjacent to a subdivision on Loren Drive, which had been included in the second phase of the initiative but was removed by the council after a number of residents opposed its inclusion during a first reading vote.

The first phase, which set restrictions along Crane Drive and Russell Road, was approved late last year as a beta site and was phased in without incident, DeKalb Police Chief Gene Lowery said.

Phase 2 of the initiative prohibits on-street parking except for permitted residents in the College/John neighborhood in DeKalb’s 5th Ward and a narrow strip of property in the Annie Glidden North area from Hyacinth Lane to Newman Lane.

A layout of each phase of the initiative and information on how to apply for resident parking permits is available on the city of DeKalb’s website.

Also on Monday’s agenda is the approval of a resolution that would implement a temporary process for the regulation of food trucks. This comes as city staff evaluate significant revisions to various sections of the city code, including provisions dealing with food trucks.

Staff considered making revisions after the DeKalb Rotary Club expressed frustrations in the city’s permitting process for food trucks during its “Trucktober” event last year.

The City Council meeting will be at 6 p.m. in the council chambers
of the DeKalb Municipal Building,
200 S. Fourth St.
