    Are residential pools still allowed in Parker…Idyllwilde ?

    klmickartz asked 4 months ago

    Hello, klmickartz. From a Town perspective, pools are permitted as an accessory use to homes here in Parker. Residents are required to go through the permitting process with our Building Division when adding a pool. We also recommend that residents reach out to their water and sanitation provider and homeowner's association to ensure they do not have any restrictions.

    When is the sound barrier wall going to be completed on the South Parker Rd project? The Town of Parker has dramatically increased the amount of traffic and people making the road noise is unbearable. Last update was that the wall would be completed mid-December and we all see that that hasn't happened.

    JC asked 11 months ago

    Hello, JC. Thank your for submitting your question through Let's Talk Parker. Construction on the sound barrier wall was impacted due to supply chain issues that the contractor experienced with acquiring lumber. Project construction has begun and is expected to finish by the end of January 2022.

    While there are some protected bike lanes in Parker, there are some places those lanes suddenly end (northbound on Chambers at Lincoln, for example). With high traffic volume on those roads, it can feel unsafe to continue in the street on a bicycle in those instances. Laws regarding riding a bicycle on a sidewalk vary from place to place in Colorado, and I've been unable to find a statement directly addressing my question. Is it legal for a bicyclist to ride their bike on a sidewalk within Parker town limits?

    shancdoyle asked about 1 year ago

    Hello. Thank you for contacting us about cycling in Parker. Two things to note from your question: 

    1. The Town of Parker does not have laws prohibiting bicycles on sidewalks. We hope that cyclists using Parker's sidewalks follow proper trail etiquette, such as observing trail speed limits (15 mpg) and yielding to pedestrians and equestrians when appropriate. 

    2. Regarding the lack of bike lanes on Chambers Road northbound from Lincoln Road, much of that roadway is actually not within the Town of Parker's boundary. The bulk of that stretch of road is in unincorporated Douglas County. 

    If you have any other questions about cycling in Parker, just let us know!
