SUBJECT:

Title

Public hearing and first reading of an ordinance to amend Section 126-346 to establish a no parking zone on E San Antonio Street at N Gilbert Avenue.

 

Body

BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

Council District:  5

With the completion of the San Antonio Street Bridge, E San Antonio Street was repaved and restriped, including the pavement markings of the downtown two-hour parking spaces. City staff recognized the need for wider clearance around the driveways of the ADM Milling Co. The mill has two driveways fronting E San Antonio Street: (1) just west of the San Antonio Street Bridge and (2) at N Gilbert Avenue. Due to the ingress and egress of large trucks at these two driveways, allowing parking poses a safety issue for both the parked vehicles and the trucks. With the recent restriping of downtown two-hour parking, staff excluded the area around the mill driveways for parking. Staff now recommends establishing this area as an official no parking zone in the Code of Ordinances and installing appropriate signage.
