If you're going to ACL, you can't park in Rollingwood

There are many reasons why Gary Grossenbacher loves ACL.

“The music's great, it's a big party and it's right by my house,” said Grossenbacher.

But along with it, comes thousands and thousands of people walking through his Rollingwood neighborhood.

“You get people doing inappropriate stuff in the street, you see beer cans,” said Grossenbacher.

Up until 2015, parking was always a struggle, especially for residents dealing with it. Grossenbacher says oftentimes, he wouldn't have parking spots for any friends to come over.

“Other people in Rollingwood would drive over and park in front of my house and take my spot. We would have everybody  try and beat everyone to the punch here and get here early,” said Grossenbacher.

For the third year, Rollingwood police are enforcing their parking policy. It's residents only. Those who live there, have received address specific permits for themselves and their guests.

“The residents were very pleased with the results, they were no longer having to deal with so much traffic, and people walking through their yards,” said Chief Dayne Pryor, Rollingwood Police Department.

Aside from parking, Pryor says they are expecting to face other crimes too, but hopefully nothing major.

“Most of it is misdemeanors, public intoxication, some drug arrests, occasional assaults,” said Pryor.

If you're looking to get to the festival, in the Rollingwood city limits, there are specific pickup and drop-off locations for concert-goers. The best thing to do is to take a rideshare, or hop on board a free bus at Republic Square Park downtown.  It'll not only save you a headache, but homeowners as well.
