In an email out to constituents, Mayor Garcia announced the city is providing additional off street parking permit parking and will delay any street sweeping citations until March 30th
The email states:
“Beginning today, March 21, and continuing through April 30, 2020, residents living in parking impacted neighborhoods can apply for a free parking permit for one of the following local lots or garages:
Granada, 5100 E. Ocean Blvd.
Junipero, 2100 E. Ocean Blvd.
Belmont, 380 E. Shoreline
City Place Garage A, 50 W. 6th St.
City Place Garage B, 50 E. 5th St.
City Place Garage C, 50 E. 3rd St.
Pike Garage, 65 Cedar Ave.
Aquarium Garage, 99 Aquarium Way
Terrace Theater Garage, 300 E. Ocean Blvd.
Interested residents can email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive an application. Once completed and returned, a permit providing access to the location of their choice (if not already full) will be mailed to their home. Passes will be available on a first-come first-served basis.”
It goes onto state, “Normal street sweeping operations and enforcement will resume on Monday, March 30, 2020. Street sweeping is an essential service necessary for public health and safety, and during this time we ask residents to continue to voluntarily move their cars to allow for sweeping if they are able to.“
Street sweeping parking tickets have been increased to $70 per ticket up from $60 a year prior to some resident’s dismay prompting a few City Council candidate’s to propose lowering rolling back parking fee tickets in parking impacted neighborhoods.
