ARLINGTON (1080 KRLD) - New parking regulations for three neighborhoods near AT&T Stadium in Arlington will go into effect this weekend. The city will prohibit on-street parking in selected neighborhoods on dates with major events happening at the stadium including concerts, Dallas Cowboys home games and other football games.

The City Council approved the new regulations earlier this year. Their goal is to keep streets in those neighborhoods clear for emergency vehicles on days with big crowds in the Entertainment District. The city will notify neighbors with portable "No Parking" signs and will list events that trigger the street parking ban on the  Entertainment District Special Events Parking web page

"We strive to protect and maintain neighborhood integrity while ensuring our Entertainment District visitors have a great experience," Arlington Deputy Police Chief Leland Strickland said. "If fans choose not to park in designated event parking lots, their vehicles are not properly protected, and they could be towed."

The no-parking zones are divided into three areas.

Stadium West Zone: directly west of AT&T Stadium and bounded by Slaughter Street to the north, Collins Street to the east, North Street to the south and Mesquite Street to the west.

Roosevelt Zone: northwest of the stadium and  bounded by Andrews Street to the north, Collins Street to the east, Randol Mill Road to the south and Mesquite Street to the west.

Woodbrook Zone: north of the stadium and bounded by Road to Six Flags Street to the north, Willowbrook Street to the east, Woodbrook Street to the south and Collins Street to the west.

On Saturday, September 15th, the regulations will take effect in the Woodbrook zone because of a college football game between Ohio State and TCU. They'll be in effect on Sunday, September 16th in the Woodbrook zone because of the NFL game between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants.
