Parking
 
In order to maintain a safe environment and minimize parking issues, Columbus Grove has adopted very specific parking procedures.  It is extremely important that residents and guests fully understand the rules and regulations as they pertain to parking within the community.
 
Home Owners and or guests may not park on the street overnight—unless the Home Owner has obtained an approved Decal OR the guest has been issued a “Safe List” by using the safe list process. Home Owners and guests who do not follow these guidelines will be subject to towing.
 
Please note that the Savannah sub association has its own parking program. For more information on this please contact the Savannah management. 
 
Safe List
 
  • A resident in good standing may “Safe list” their guest’s vehicle for overnight parking for up to 10 days, per calendar month.
 
  • You may Patrol Masters directly to safe list a guest’s vehicle or you may do so online.
          www.patrolmasters.com
          Patrol Masters (877) 648-0602
         
 
  • Columbus Grove residents may not safe list their own vehicles. Safe Listing is for guest vehicles only.
  • Please be advised that Patrol Masters is hired to enforce parking/community regulations and should not be considered community/home security. To report suspicious behavior/theft please contact the police department. 
 
Extended Safe List (temporary street parking)
 
  • Each Columbus Grove household receives 30 days a year for an Extended Safe List which may be used for guest vehicle parking. You must apply for Extended Safe List approval.
 
  • In addition to submitting an Extended Safe List Application, residents must provide copies of all Drivers Licenses and all Vehicle Registrations listed on the application.
 
  • Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
 
  • The Parking Committee will review the application and decide upon approval or denial.
 
 
 
Decal (permanent street parking)
 
  • Decals are issued to those residents who have a valid need for additional parking and will not be issued to residents who are simply seeking to utilize their garage/driveway space for non-parking activities.
         Two Car Garage: Requires three vehicles before a Decal can be requested
         Two Car Garage w/ Driveway: Requires five vehicles before a Decal can be requested 
 
  • In addition to submitting the Decal Application residents must provide copies of all Drivers Licenses and all Vehicle Registrations listed on the application along with the $300 Decal fee plus the $25 Garage Inspection fee (Check only written to the Columbus Grove Association).
 
  • Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
 
  • The Parking Committee will review the application and decide upon approval or denial.
 
Please note storage of vehicles is not allowed within Columbus Grove. No AUTHORIZED VEHICLE with a PARKING DECAL shall regularly park on the street for more than 16 hours per day, 5 days per week, without the express written permission of the Association. PARKING DECALS are intended to permit parking by a resident that regularly drives the vehicle that is issued a permit and is not intended to permit vehicles to be stored on the streets and only moved occasionally (i.e. moved only once every 96 hours).Moving a vehicle a few feet or even across the street does not resolve a storage violation.  So long as the vehicles is within the community for 96 hours it is considered “stored”. In any event, even if a Parking decal is issued, the car may be towed if it is not routinely used.  In fact, simply moving the car is called out as inadequate to avoid towing.
