Changes At Rez Parks

The Pearl River Valley Water Supply District is implementing new regulations for many parks around the Barnett Reservoir.  Any parks affected by the changes will have new signs posted this week listing the rules.     

One significant change is that neighborhood parks will now close from sunset to sunrise and parking or driving on the grass is prohibited.

Several parks received new signs on Monday.  







The PRVWSD is responsible for enforcing all park rules and has recently issued over 130 citations for violations of park policy.

Regulations may vary from park to park so check the signs upon entering any Rez park.

Sunrise and sunset times are available on numerous web sites and local TV,  radio and newspaper weather forecasts.

FANTASTIC! We appreciate the PRV listening to leashholders about our concerns. This park has been used as LOVERS LANE by late night teenagers. Our children need a safe and sanitary place to play. Thanks a million PRV.

Just what we need, more government rules and regulations!

The more I read this blog, the more I am convinced it is about "more" government. Is this a Democrat website?

Pretty signs.

Is a neighborhood ramp considered a REZ park ?

If one must be a "Democrat" to believe in having the freedom to enjoy clean parks...count me in.

None of this would have existed without "more" government.

No reservoir. No parks. No roads. No water supply. No affordable electricity. No schools. Nothing.

Stupid people don't believe in zoning until someone opens a beer joint or a "massage parlor" next door.

People living near the reservoir don't even own the land, yet they act as if it were theirs. It is owned by GOVERNMENT! Government-Owned parks need to be taken care of by GOVERNMENT! Free people who think they can do whatever they want to have shown themselves incapable of handling the job.

Thanks PRV!!!! I know this has been a problem for many residents in turtle creek, and forest point and a few other subdivisions. hopefully, this will curtail any late night happenings in the parks and boat ramps. can't wait for pepsi pops though, we'll see how strict the enforcement is when you have 50 trucks and boat trailers parked at a boat ramp past dark. i still like the idea of giving the boat ramps and parks back to the subdivisions. keep up the good work PRV....

Excellent point 10:34AM. If the PRV is doing such a good job; No need for an Overlay District, eh?

@ 10:34 The PRV is doing a great job with what powers it has. They'll be able to do a better job with the OD.

Cannot wait.

So now, the OD will have oversight over the PRV?

WTF?

Will the parking lot be available for parking at Christmas partys or other neighborhood functions after dark?

Man I'm glad I did not get a ticked this morning. Went for my morning run before the sun was up and I did run down to one of the boat ramps in my subdivision.

Watch out Jim. You might find yourself spread eagle getting cuffed and stuffed if you continue to do this type of behavior when the Overlay District takes control.

But by then, all the grass might be mowed and they will overlook your egregious infraction of running past curfew.

Jim, If you have run down to the boat ramp at Bay Park in the past, you probably have step on used condoms from the ALL NIGHT LOVE BIRDS. But now, THANKS TO THE PRV decision to close them at night, the park is clean and condom free for our children to play DURING REASONABLE HOURS.
