SUBJECT:

Title

Approval of the first reading of an ordinance amending Section 126-346 of the Code of Ordinances to restrict parking along a portion of East Nacogdoches Street.

 

Body

BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

Council District:  5

 

Engineering staff received a request to restrict parking along the north side of East Nacogdoches Street between Kuehler Avenue and Karbach Avenue due to concerns about narrow streets and asphalt maintenance. This section of East Nacogdoches Street is approximately 23 feet wide. Vehicles parking on the north side of this section of East Nacogdoches Street are pulling off of the asphalt to allow for travel lanes to remain clear, but this causes the edge of the asphalt to require more maintenance as it breaks with vehicles driving over it.

 

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

2006 Comprehensive Plan:  Transportation Goal 21:  Provide a system of convenient and safe transportation facilities through comprehensive, cooperative, and continuing transportation system planning and development.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

Traffic control signs cost approximately $150 each. Sufficient funds are available in the FY 2018-19 Public Works budget.

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION:

The Transportation and Traffic Advisory Board unanimously approved a parking restriction along the north side of East Nacogdoches Street from the intersection with Kuehler Avenue to Karbach Avenue at their meeting on December 13, 2018.

 

STAFF RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends approval of establishing a no parking zone along the north side of East Nacogdoches Street from the intersection with Kuehler Avenue to Karbach Avenue.
