BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

Staff received a request from a property owner within the 100 block of Hampe Street to establish a new parking by permit area. The area consists of one auto shop and four single family homes, one of which is a currently vacant rental.

 

A signed petition has been received from the property owner requesting to establish a parking by permit area on the southeast side of Hampe Street between South Seguin Avenue and Comal Avenue. This request is for Monday through Saturday between 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

 

Three of the six property owners have signed the petition. Two-thirds of the property owners are required to sign to validate the petition, and therefore staff cannot recommend approval at this time. The last required signature, however, is expected to be received before the scheduled October Transportation and Traffic Advisory Board meeting. Any updated information will be presented at the meeting.

 

The proposed designated parking by permit area is one side of one contiguous block. Less than two thirds 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 public hearing will be at a future City Council meeting and notices will be sent in advance of the meeting. The requested permit area meets the area requirements in the City of New Braunfels Code of Ordinances.

 

 

 

ISSUE:

Residents of the southeast side of the 100 block of Hampe Street have signed a petition to establish a parking by permit area on Monday through Saturday between 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

 

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

Traffic control signs cost approximately $150 each. Sufficient funding is available in the FY 2022 approved streets and drainage budget.

 

 

Recommendation

RECOMMENDATION:

Staff can not recommend establishing a parking by permit area on the southeast side of Hampe Street between South Seguin Avenue and Comal Avenue on Monday through Saturday between 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at this time because the number of signatures currently submitted does not meet the petition requirements in the City of New Braunfels Code of Ordinances.
