Kennett board OKs ‘no parking’ signs to be installed near popular restaurant
● By Richard Gaw
Taqueria Moroleon on 9173 Gap Newport Pike in Avondale is known by locals primarily for two things: its plentiful and delicious Mexican cuisine, and a persistent overflow of cars in its parking lot, which on many nights has led some of the restaurant’s patrons to seek parking elsewhere.
Many have begun parking illegally on Skyview Lane, located across the busy stretch of highway, and at their meeting on Feb. 6, the Kennett Township Board of Supervisors voted to enforce parking regulations by passing Resolution 2019-10, which gives the township’s police department the authority to place ‘no parking’ signs along the lane.
Before making his recommendation for the signs to the board, township Police Chief Lydell Nolt told the supervisors that Skyview Lane is not conducive to on-street parking, and that it is dangerous for pedestrian traffic to cross Gap Newport Pike.
The resolution authorizes not only the addition of the signs, but for township police to issue $15 fines for those who continue to park on the road, and allows the township to issue traffic citations which can push fines up to $141.
Nolt said that his department has received full cooperation from the restaurant’s management. It is not known if the restaurant is planning to construct additional parking spaces.
In other township business, the board also passed Res. 2019-09, which authorizes the township to place speed limit signs in the Richardsons Run Development on Pierce Lane. The speed limit is 25 miles per hour in the development.
