I have some neighbors who operate a junk hauling business from their house. They regularly park 2 beat-up pickup trucks filled with junk on our street. It’s annoying to look at and they take up lots of space but I’m not sure much can be done about that. Our street is RPP zoned for 2hr parking M-F.
Now however, they have procured a large flatbed tow truck and have been parking it on the street as well.
It has VA plates and they have a giant boat on top of it. It’s taking up 2-3 parking spaces from residents and partially blocking the street. It seems like this type of vehicle should not be allowed to park consistently on a residential street. I’ve looked up 311 parking violation reporting options but can’t find something that seems applicable to report it. Any ideas?
FWIW these same neighbors have had their junk trucks break down and they sit for months, getting tickets, and no one moves them until enough of us complain and harass the city will eventually tow them. They have to bring garbage trucks to unload the truck beds first. I can’t even get my garbage can lid fixed but they get free towing and disposal of their busted vehicles.
I’m just over these guys using the street as their junk business parking lot with little consideration or actual consequence.
PS I respect the junk removing hustle but not at the expense of other neighbors.”

Come solve a crime that took place in Takoma Park 130 years ago!
HouseMouse Books and Vintage is excited to announce the debut of Escape the Bookshop II, our new limited-run escape room experience. Escape the Bookshop II is a unique group puzzle game that is based on a real crime that took place in Takoma Park around 130 years ago. It is designed and created by HouseMouse to be played in our atmospheric little bookshop. This is not your typical corporate escape room and makes for a memorable evening out with friends or family!
Bookings are now open for game dates in January through April 2024. The game generally takes place Wednesday through Saturday at 8 PM but special arrangements can be made upon request. It is designed to be played by a group of 3 to 6 people (ages 16+) and lasts for one hour. No prior escape room experience is needed to enjoy the game.
