Off path parking banned at McIntosh

As the opening bell of school is within days of ringing, a new fleet of golf cart driving students are preparing to descend upon the campus at McIntosh High School.

Cart drivers will have to adjust to a lack of off-campus parking

As the opening bell of school is within days of ringing, a new fleet of golf cart driving students are preparing to descend upon the campus at McIntosh High School.

Cart drivers will have to adjust to a lack of off-campus parking directly off a cart path that runs almost parallel to Peachtree Parkway between Stevens Entry and the school.

In April the City Council voted to make that path a no-parking area, though carts will still be allowed to park off campus along Prime Point.

City crews have already erected no-parking signs along the area of the path.

The no-parking decision for the path was made in the face of photographs of carts parked haphazardly in the off-path wooded area with trash on the ground. Some of the carts were parked with two wheels still on the path, which led to citizen complaints about the path being blocked, officials have said.

The decision to make the path a no-parking zone was not unanimous, however. Councilman Doug Sturbaum voted against the measure, saying he felt the school should add more parking spaces for golf carts before the city took action on the matter.
