Develop a comprehensive list of parking solutions and implement solutions in accordance with Parking Management Plan priorities and goals.
In 2013 staff completed an analysis of the state of the City’s public parking. The City Council provided parking management policy goals and guidance at its meeting of December 3, 2013 and subsequently adopted this 2014 Key Initiative. 2014 activities include implementation of various parking solutions in accordance with City Council goals and guidance. A parking management plan was developed based on input from the public and presented at the April 1 City Council meeting. The plan includes recommended policies and technology that are responsive to the needs of the public and parking options that provide value and service to our visitors, employees, business owners, and residents. As a follow up to the recommended policies, a timeline to implement the following polices was presented and approved by council at the May 6, 2014 City Council meeting. 1)
Extend current permitted parking enforcement time from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. This change was implemented on July 1st. 2)
Provide more convenient and attractive parking options for employees by allowing unrestricted parking at the Sunset Center north lot, and eliminating time restrictions along Junipero Street between 3rd and 6th including the center medians. This change is anticipated to be implemented on August 4. 3)
Implement a paid parking multi-space pilot program on both sides of Ocean Ave between Junipero Ave and Monte Verde Street. This change is anticipated to be implemented on October 13th.
Maintain a leadership role in developing a long-term solution to the region’s water supply and develop additional local water conservation and water supply alternatives.
