[Ord. #2814 § I]
The Township Council further finds that one factor threatening the safety, health and attractiveness of the Township's neighborhoods is the excessive and burdensome practice of nonresidents parking their motor vehicles for extended periods of time in certain neighborhoods within the Township. This practice is caused in part by the implementation by neighboring communities of no overnight parking within their city limits. As such, the number of nonresident motor vehicles attempting to park within certain residential areas in the Township of Belleville often exceeds the number of available parking spaces. A preferential parking system for certain neighborhoods within the Township will help to reduce the burden of those excess vehicles on the residents of those neighborhoods and thus promote the general welfare of the Township.
[Ord. #2814 § II]
For the purposes of this section, the following words shall have the meanings ascribed to them in this section as follows:

MOTOR VEHICLE
Shall mean an automobile, truck, recreation vehicle, motorcycle, or other motor driven or self-propelled form of transportation.
OWNS
Shall mean that a person has at least one-quarter interest in a parcel of real property within a residential parking permit area.
RESIDENT VEHICLE

RESIDENTIAL PARKING PERMIT AREA
Shall mean a residential district determined by the Township Council to be such area affected by nonresident motor vehicle parking as a result of other municipalities restricting overnight parking.
[Ord. #2814 § III, § XV; Ord. #2824; Ord. #3097 § I]
The Township Council has determined that residential areas within the Township of Belleville would benefit from residential parking permits within those areas. In accordance with the provisions of this section, the areas described in Schedule A attached to and made part of this section are hereby designated residential parking permit areas. From time to time the Township Council may review the list of designated residential parking permit areas and may make changes as deemed appropriate by the Township Council. The Township Council may add or delete any areas it deems appropriate in the interest of promoting the general welfare of the Township of Belleville. In determining whether nonresident vehicle parking sufficiently impacts a residential district within the Township of Belleville, the Township Council shall consider factors including but not limited to the following:
a. 
The extent that legal on-street parking spaces are occupied by motor vehicles during the period proposed for parking restrictions.
b. 
The extent that vehicles parking in the area during the period proposed for parking restrictions are commuter vehicles.
c. 
The extent that residents cannot obtain adequate curbside parking adjacent to or near their residence because of widespread use of available curbside parking spaces by nonresident vehicles.
d. 
The effect on the safety of the residents from intensive nonresident vehicle parking.
e. 
The extent that the designation of a residential parking permit area would be likely to reduce traffic congestion and other problems related to nonresident parking.
f. 
The extent and need for parking by the general public in a residential district.
g. 
The desire of the residents in the residential parking permit areas for the institution of a residential parking permit system.
h. 
The extent that no reasonable alternative is feasible or practicable that would reduce traffic congestion and other problems related to nonresident parking without unduly impacting surrounding residential areas.
