So far, all they've done on Braemar is put up "Residents Only" signs on the south side of the street. The north side was bumper-to-bumper (including some dudes having post-ride beers outside their camper van) when I rode by on Sunday afternoon. The Hyannis/Berkley area seems to be more restricted.
The top of Hyannis & Berkley at the trail head is a combo of no parking / residents only. A lot of the Hyannis/Berkley (includes Hill Dr, etc) area is residents only, some places both sides of the street, other places one side only. Another option to spread riders out might be to ride up through the Blair Range area (Mt Seymour Parkway / Northlands, though I'm not sure on parking restrictions there).
A reminder to please not take up the sidewalk or spill over into the street as you get ready or finish your ride. I've seen a number of situations where a rider has their gear piled on the sidewalk and there's no space for someone to walk past them at an appropriate distance.
There's also a lot more foot traffic out on Seymour* these days, and not everyone is used to seeing bikes on the trail. Make sure to give everyone space to pass. It's not the time to yell at someone for walking up John Deer; let them know that it's a popular downhill bike trail, that GSM will be a quieter option for them, tell them about trailforks, etc... Be kind. :-)
And for the love of whatever god you do or do not pray to, please do not blow snot rockets!!
*can't speak for Fromme as I've only been on Seymour
