Howard U. Homecoming this weekend: parade, street closures, etc.

It's time for Howard University's Homecoming, the biggest event of the year for the school. Here's some info:

Howard University wants to remind the community about the Howard University homecoming activities which started yesterday, Sunday, Oct. 16 with a gospel concert. Activities will run through Saturday, Oct. 22 with a football game. A parade is scheduled for Saturday morning at 10 AM with roving street closures. The parade route and additional information is attached.

You can expected lots of vehicle and foot traffic along the Georgia Avenue and Sherman Avenue corridors ALL DAY on Saturday, Oct. 22. Street parking throughout the neighborhood might be at a premium on that day.

This was a big event and parking was at a premium even though some of the streets are clearly marked zone 1 permits only 7am-10pm. Still there wasn't any parking for residents returning home. I called parking enforcement on two occasions and no tickets were issued. Why is it that residents near American University are so sucessful having strict parking regulations enforced but the parking enforcement people refuse to service our neighborhood except at 7:01AM M-F for lane violations?
