BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

Council District:  5

 

City Council unanimously approved the first reading of an ordinance to amend Section 126-354 of the City of New Braunfels Code of Ordinances to revise Parking by Permit Area B on August 26, 2019.

 

Staff has received a request from property owners along South Veramendi Avenue between East Basel Street and East Mather Street to be included in the existing Parking by Permit Area B. The requested area consists of single-family homes.

 

Signed petitions have been received from the property owners and residents requesting addition into Parking by Permit Area B on both sides of South Veramendi Avenue between East Basel Street and East Mather Street. This request is for daily between 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., from May 1 to September 30, which is consistent with the existing Parking by Permit Area B ordinance.

 

The proposed designated parking by permit area is a contiguous residential area and matches the schedule of existing parking by permit areas. All of the affected residents have submitted a signed statement of the following:

 

We the undersigned are residents and/or property owners of the proposed designated permit area described in this application. We understand that: (i) if this area is designated, certain restrictions will be placed upon on-street parking within the area; (ii) residents and/or residential property owners of the area will be entitled to obtain a limited number of parking permits exempting their vehicles from such parking restrictions, but if a resident and/or property owner owns a vehicle without having a permit displayed, that vehicle will be subject to the parking restrictions; (iii) parking permits will be issued for a term of one year and require replacement each year; (iv) the cost of issuing the annual parking permits will be paid by the residents and/or property owners.

 

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) within a 300 foot radius of the requested area and all residents listed on the petition.
