PARKING RULES, REGULATIONS & POLICIES
Each home in Talega was designed with a minimum of a two car garage. The purpose of the garage(s) is to provide space to park vehicles owned by the homeowner, and is designed as the primary parking area. Additionally, homes within Talega that have driveways are designed to accommodate the parking of at least two or three additional authorized vehicles and are designated as a secondary parking area.
These primary and secondary parking areas (garage and driveway) are designated resident parking areas. All authorized vehicles owned or controlled by a resident must be parked in these areas, unless a homeowner is granted a safelisting as hereinafter set forth. The following information details the Talega Maintenance Corporation (TMC) Parking Rules, Regulations & Policies. The policy should be read in its entirety, however, the general philosophy of the policy is:
- Parking is not allowed on the streets at night between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. There may be exceptions to this rule for visitors and under special circumstances as determined by a representative of TMC on a case-by-case basis.
- The policy calls for towing of vehicles repeatedly parked in violation of the rules.
- Residents are to park in their garages and fully utilize the designed garage capacity before parking in their driveway.
- Garage doors should typically be open for ingress and egress and should not be left open for extended periods of time.
- If a homeowner resides in a Sub-association of the TMC, the Sub-association’s parking rules supersede the TMC rules.

Management will only allow street parking for those residents requesting a temporary safelisting for Visitor vehicles who can show more authorized vehicles than spaces. Should it come to the attention of management that there is enough room to park any additional vehicles in either the garage or driveway, the resident will be contacted and a demand made that they use all of their available spaces before parking on the street.
