San Leandro to host community meeting on downtown parking strategies
Submitted By Teresa Meyer
Mayor Pauline Russo Cutter and the San Leandro City Council announced that the Engineering & Transportation Department will be hosting a community outreach meeting to discuss parking issues in the downtown area. The meeting will take place on Wednesday, August 5, and will include extensive opportunities for the public to share ideas and concerns about parking in the downtown area.
ÒParking congestion throughout our downtown is an ongoing issue that community residents have made very clear needs to be looked at more closely,Ó noted Mayor Cutter. ÒFor these reasons, the City has launched an intensive parking study and is seeking to start a conversation with the public in order to formulate potential solutions. I encourage San Leandrans to get involved and help the City in its efforts to address the communityÕs concerns.Ó
In the downtown area, the City controls about 4,200 parking spaces, of which 2,780 are on-street and 1,420 are off-street, spread across seven parking facilities, including the recently renovated downtown parking garage. Parking regulations and controls have evolved over time and do not currently provide a cohesive parking strategy, which can impede effective land use and economic development planning efforts. For these reasons, the City is seeking to develop a comprehensive Downtown Parking Garage and Downtown Parking Management Plan.
