Today, Helena is one of the fastest growing municipalities in the state, and has far outgrown even the wildest dreams of its most ardent promoters in the heady days of the 1880s and 1890s. -- From "Helena, Alabama" by Ken Penhale, Martin Everse
Helena, Alabama was born out of Birmingham's metropolitan sprawl that headed south to Hoover and kept on going. With almost 17,000 residents (as of the 2010 U.S. Census), this small city loves itself for a lot of reasons. It brags about being one of the best places to live in Alabama because it has the lowest state crime rate per capita, beautiful scenery, and lots of nice housing options. It just goes to show that a city can be a mere 17.1 square miles in total size and still boast like the big guys. All the statisticians think this city's population will continue growing over the coming decades, so anytime is a good time to move here and become a statistic. See more
Parking can be at a premium in some cities where spaces are challenging to find. Some Helena apartments offer parking options, either outside in a common area or within a private garage.
Ask about the stipulations around the parking. Those may include how many guests are allowed and where tenants park.
Some apartments may only allow parking in front of your own unit. Guest parking may be in a common area for up to one person.
If parking is scarce, look around the area before you sign a lease. Ample street parking in a neighborhood championed for its safety is probably fine. However, it’s probably not worth signing a lease if it means battling for daily parking for you and your guests.
Research whether you need a city permit to park in the neighborhood. Look into the associated costs and what to do about visitors who need parking.
Some tenants prefer garage parking near their units. However, an open-air lot may prove cheaper.
Keep in mind that the cost of wear and tear from parking outside can add up. It may be less expensive, in the long run, to look for an apartment with garage parking.
