Contractors need to use common sense when working in existing residential areas

Certainly new construction is unavoidable as vacant land is developed with infill developments.  But with just a little common sense, and courtesy, construction crews can minimize their impact on existing homeowners. Such is the case on Lequel Way in Carmichael, where L&H Construction is finishing the last of 7 homes in their Brentwood Place development.  The development is being built on the eastern end of the existing Gracey Terrace II subdivision cul de sac.   Some specialized vehicles, such as cement trucks have no option but to park as close as they can to the project.  But on a section of street that is just 8 houses long, couldn't contractors park their vehicles on Jason Way, a street with no houses fronting on it?  During the construction of the 4 houses on Lequel Way, contractor vehicles have blocked access to Sacramento County garbage trucks, who could not safely negotiate the street, and had to skip pickup.   The mailman at least has the option of walking this portion of the street.  Fortunately there have been no incidents which required access to the street by Sacramento Metro Fire crews or ambulances.
