Update 09-2016 – We have launched a webpage with the full details of the pilot residential parking permit program here.
The City is moving forward in the restart of its Residential Permit Parking with a pilot program specifically for District 1. I know many neighbors are eager to see this pilot implemented and have permit parking on their street. The pilot program included in the current budget provides funding to hire one new staff member in the Department of Transportation (DOT) to implement the new pilot program in District 1. There is preliminary work that needs to be done in order to facilitate the restart of the program. The residential permit program requires a set of guidelines that dictate what specific parking situation is required in order for a neighborhood to qualify for residential permit parking. This includes guidelines such as the percentage of on-street parking that must be occupied to warrant permits, among others. DOT is looking at other cities of similar size in the US and California to see if the new pilot program would benefit from updated guidelines. We will be looking soon for input from neighbors, and plan to schedule a community meeting in the coming months to gather input. We will be sure to notify everyone once we have secured a date.
