BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

The River Operations Manager has requested that the start date for the water recreation loading zones on W Lincoln Street, Liebscher Drive, and S Gilbert Street be revised from May 1 to March 1 to include spring break. A temporary extension from March 12 through May 1, 2021 was authorized by Keith Lane, Interim Chief of Police, on March 12, 2021. This ordinance is to make this change permanent for future years.

 

Per the River Operations Manager, it would be beneficial for only shuttle vehicles to access the designated zones starting in spring break, which is in March. The way the ordinance is currently written allows for public vehicles to park and leave their cars in the shuttle zones when the zone is not active, creating a potential problem for shuttle operations during spring break.

 

 

ISSUE:

The existing dates in the ordinance allows for public vehicles to park and leave their cars in the shuttle zones when the zone is not active, creating a potential problem for shuttle operations during spring break.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

The cost to update the dates on the existing signs is approximately $200. Sufficient funding is available in the FY 2021 approved streets and drainage budget.

 

 

Recommendation

RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends approval of amending Section 126-386 to revise the starting date for water recreation loading zones on W Lincoln Street, Liebscher Drive, and S Gilbert Street from May 1 to March 1.
