SUBJECT:

Title

Approval of the second and final reading of an ordinance amending Section 126-354 of the City of New Braunfels Code of Ordinances to revise Parking by Permit Area G.

 

Body

BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

Council District:  5

 

City Council held a public hearing on March 22, 2021 and unanimously approved the first reading of the proposed ordinance.

Staff has received a request from a property owner along Guada Coma Drive to be included in the existing Parking by Permit Area G. The requested area consists of one single-family home.

A signed petition has been received from the property owner requesting addition into Parking by Permit Area G on the east side of Guada Coma Drive between Comal Avenue and Lindheimer 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 G 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 for the initial requested area:

 

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.

 

The Council Meeting held on March 22, 2021 was a public hearing for this consideration. 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.
