SUBJECT:

Title

Public hearing and first reading of an ordinance amending Section 126-354 of the City of New Braunfels Code of Ordinances to revise Parking by Permit Area B.

 

Body

BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

Council District:  5

 

As a part of staff’s review of Parking by Permit Area B, typographical errors were found and are proposed to be corrected at this time. Additionally, the property at 416 East Mather Street is proposed to be added to Area B due to a hardship for the property owners. There is limited parking availability at this lot due to a fire hydrant, so only one parking spot is available in front of this address. If this parking spot is taken by another vehicle, it forces the resident to park down the street, which is a hardship due to a handicap of a resident of this address.

 

The proposed designated parking by permit area is a contiguous residential area and matches the schedule of existing parking by permit areas. The permit area meets the petition requirement in the City of New Braunfels Code of Ordinances.

 

A public hearing on the application shall be conducted by City Council. Notices of the public hearing were mailed to all property owners (as shown on the latest tax roll) and residents within the designated permit area.

 

ADDRESSES A NEED/ISSUE IN A CITY PLAN OR COUNCIL PRIORITY:

Strategic Priority: Public Safety; Objective 5: Develop comprehensive program for river related issues which includes addressing river related issues in a timely manner and reviewing options to address river related activities and quality of life issues.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

Traffic control signs cost approximately $150 each. Sufficient funding is available in the FY17-18 approved streets and drainage budget.
