The City Council will consider the implementation of a 90-Day Downtown Nighttime Paid Parking Pilot Program at tomorrow night’s regularly scheduled meeting. It’s Item #1 on the agenda under Regular Business.
We first reported on this on July 23.
Here’s the staff recommendation from the agenda item’s backup memo prepared by Community Development Director Ted White:
RECOMMENDATION: Approve a 90-day downtown nighttime paid parking pilot program within the following parameters:
a) Location:Public parking lots and structures generally bounded by Wilshire Avenue on the north, the railroad tracks on the south, Malden Avenue on the west and Pomona Avenue on the east
b) Days and Times:Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights between 8:00 PM and 1:00 AM
c) Fees: A flat fee for parking set at $5 with the potential for adjustments based on demand, not to exceed $10
d) Use of Net Revenues: Designate revenue from the program for reinvestment into the operations of the Downtown, generally including maintenance, enforcement, safety and security and including funding for the preparation of an Assessment Engineer’s Report to inform consideration of the formation of a Business Improvement District and/or other type of Landscape, Lighting or Maintenance District.
