When you say "your spot", is this a designated spot that came with the lease or ownership of your home? Thanks!
No. There is not parking lease or anything of that nature. It's a residential street. I know, the street is public and belongs to the city.
Darn, I wish your answer would have been different. If it is just public parking and there are no permits required, there is no way to purchase a permit for the reasons you would want one. The best thing I can tell you to do is to call the utilities company and/or the city (or county if that is where this dilapidated tree is located) and file a report for them to come out and trim it. They should do this. Once it is trimmed, hopefully your neighbors will start parking back in front of their building. If you have more questions, I will be happy to answer them. Please accept my answer so I can receive credit for helping you. We can always continue our conversation at no additional charge. Thanks!
