LAFAYETTE, INd. (WLFI)—Tensions are rising for some residents and pool goers near Columbian Park.
"We have absolutely no parking in residential areas every time this pool is open," said homeowner, Katie.
Katie has lived Columbian Park for five years. She said parking for her is like a scavenger hunt. She said every time parking fills up at Columbian Park people turn to neighborhoods to park.
She's not alone. News 18 has spoken to other homeowners who declined to speak on camera.
"I've politely asked people to move, I've actually called the cops to have cars towed," said Katie.
Katie said the last time she called the cops to have a car towed was because the car parked in her driveway. She claims the police did nothing. She said after she called the police to report the car, the officer responded by asking her how often she parked in her own driveway.
"I had to physically approach these people, ask them if an officer confronted them about their car sitting there, that I had their plates ran, they said no, cockily didn't care," said Katie.
She said the drivers then threw a dirty diaper where they were parked and left.
"I've had people literally cuss me out like I don't live here," said Katie.
Pool goer Brire Gill said he doesn't see the issue.
"About this time of year I don't see too many people at home so unless... I don't really see what the issue is," said Gill.
However, Katie said a solution would be putting signs in the area for residential parking.
"Hopefully the mayor will see, hello mayor, we have no parking, we have trash everywhere, no trash can, please we need some help. People are going to get in physical fights. Things are going to start happening," said Katie.
