The HOA Board of Directors for the Camelot Village Property Owners Association, Inc. need assistance.

We have some new houses built on Camelot Village Ave. I've attached images, a pdf, and a link to the Preliminary Subdivision Plan Application that shows the street in question as well in better detail. Now that the homes are ready to be sold, there is a big concern about the new homeowners parking along side the street on either side of the middle median. When cars/trucks park on the road, its really hard for the school buses to get through in the mornings and afternoons. Sometimes they even have to go up into the median to get around the vehicles. Which is also tearing up the grass in the median. My concern is if a fire truck or ambulance needs to get through and cars are parked on the street, they won't be able to get through or will have to drive up on the median. The HOA pays a lot of money to keep our grass looking nice and this isn't cost effective if large vehicles are forced to drive up on the curb/grass in the median. 

So my question is, how can we stop the problem? When people park on the street, is it considered illegal since it would block or obstruct emergency vehicles getting through? If so, can the city or the HOA install no parking signs?

Thanks so much for your time.

I hope this email finds you well. As you are already aware I am out of the office until next week. My co-worker and I have spoken and feel this request will be best handled by myself. I will reach out first thing next week and set up a time for us to have a quick phone discussion, so both you and I can provide feedback on this subject.

Good Morning,


I wanted to share more pictures with you I took this weekend regarding the Camelot Village Ave. median.


We had to call the police at one point because people were having issues leaving the neighborhood and had to go out on the opposite side of the median where we normally come in at. Which is dangerous if someone was trying to come in at the same time someone was trying to leave. The police officer said there was nothing he could do as we didn't have any No Parking signs in place and that if an emergency vehicle had to come through they could drive up on the curb/median to get through. The police officer suggested I get in contact with someone at the City of Raleigh about installing No Parking Signs. I told him I was already in contact with you. He apologized that there was nothing he could do and wished me luck.


Several people have had to drive up on the median and are ruining the grass that the HOA has to pay to maintain. With Spring approaching, we will be seeding for grass soon and i'm worried it would be a waste of money to seed the median if everyone is just going to have to drive up on the median to get around vehicles.


I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your time and your help in this matter.

Here is the email from Dan Ryan Builders you requested.

They still own 3 of the 5 houses on Camelot Village Ave.

So this should be enough. Let me know if its not. Thank you!

Hope you are well and staying safe. 


I’m not sure if you are working from home or not and checking emails. But I wanted to check in to see if there was any update on the no parking signs. Residents are now parking on either side of the median and I’m getting so many complaints. I know with everything going on it might be harder to get something like this approved. I guess just looking for an update. Wanted to share a picture with you also to show how they are parking on both sides.

I still need to complete some conversations, but here is how the plan looks if everything stays on track.


  1. We would request that the HOA send letters to these residents that affront this street. These letters would need to let them know what has been requested and to respond to the HOA with any questions or concerns.

  2. Once your notification time has ended (typically we ask for two weeks) then you will let me know how that notification went and what feedback you received.

  3. Then staff will send out our own notification letters letting them know when the request will be forwarded to City Council for approval and what to expect.

  4. Then we will forward Request to City Council for final approval.


I will let you know when this process has been fully vetted by staff and when to send out your notification letters.


I do want you to be aware that things have come to a staggering halt with requests going to City Council right now, so this may unfortunately take longer than usual. Unfortunately at this time I can not provide a defined timeline. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

I hope this email finds you well. I am still working on the Camelot Village Ave item which looks like at this time it will be on the late September Council Meeting.

Thank you for updating me about Camelot village avenue and the no parking signs. It continues to be a problem. We are holding off on landscaping the median until we get the situation resolved because it’s just getting drove all over and causing holes that get muddy and the grass is dying. 


I hope you are staying safe and are doing well. Thank you for all you do. You are appreciated.

With regards to the parking restriction on Camelot Village. It looks like that item is set to go to Council on the October 20th Council Meeting. However; this may still change due to COVID 19 issue staff is constantly dealing with. I would request that around mid-September that the HOA send out a notification to the residents that afront Camelot Village Ave notifiying them that the HOA has requested this area be made no parking and why. Staff will follow up with our own notification around the end of September. Please let me know if you have any questions.

City Council Meeting

December 1st, 2020


Below is the information submitted to the City Council by the Transportation Department.

No Parking Zones – Camelot Village Avenue

It is recommended that No Parking Zones be established along both sides of Camelot Village Avenue.

Transportation staff received a request from the area’s Homeowner’s Association to have sections of Camelot Village Avenue converted to No Parking due to concerns about their resident’s inability to safely ingress and egress in the neighborhood. Camelot Village Avenue was designed with a traffic island and is the main roadway in and out of the neighborhood. The travel lane sections of this roadway along these islands is only sixteen feet wide, and at the time of the request was heavily occupied by construction workers as is now being utilized by residents. When vehicles are parked along one of these sections of the roadway, the travel lane is reduced to eight feet which is insufficient for standard traffic or emergency vehicles to safely operate. Furthermore, the current conditions are forcing traffic up onto the islands and damaging City infrastructure.  

All affected property owners were duly notified and provided two weeks to respond with any concerns and only one response was received. The homeowner wanted to verify the proposed boundaries of the restriction as well as ensure that it would be okay for his guests to park on Sir Michael Drive. Staff was able to successfully address these concerns. The proposed change will result in the loss of approximately twenty, unregulated parking spaces along Camelot Village Drive.  Upon approval, the Traffic Schedule should be amended effective seven days after Council action.

I apologize for the delay on this, but I wanted to do some digging before I responded. First, the Council approved the request to add No Parking along both sides of Camelot Village Ave in early December. At that time a work order was placed to have the signage installed, but something must have went screwy in our system because we are able to access the work orders but there is not any information on them, so they were never completed. This is the first time I have ever seen or heard of this happening. However; first of next week I will be submitting a new work order for the sings on Camelot Village Ave.  Again I apologize for this delay, but this will be completed asap. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Pictures sent in by homeowners even after the signs were installed.
