Re: Service Road parking

[image: IMG_20190131_101647.jpg]I am again requesting "No Parking in Alley"
signs on the service road that runs behind the Willows Market. I am more
and more frequently finding myself parked in by customers and delivery
trucks. I cannot squeeze my SUV out of its parking space with vehicles
parked behind it. It takes the entire space to the current chain link fence
for me to back out. Please advise how and if this signage is being
addressed.

It should also be noted that cars parked in the market lot were not exiting
through the service road because it didn't look like they could fit, thus
they were turning around in the parking lot and exiting while other cars
were attempting to enter to park.
