City officials are considering banning parking in the right-of-way known as Vine Street, between Elm and Park Streets, in St. Joseph.

ST. JOSEPH — For the past two summers, the St. Joseph Department of Public Safety has received and responded to numerous complaints about vehicles blocking driveways on Vine Street.

Public Safety Director Steve Neubecker is leaning toward recommending the city ban parking in the right-of-way known as Vine Street, between Elm and Park Streets, which is actually is an alley. The St. Joseph City Commission this week heard from several residents of the area, who voiced strong opinions for and against the proposed parking ban.
