TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF CITY COUNCIL
FROM: DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS
DATE: MARCH 18, 2003
SUBJECT: LIMITED TWO (2) HOUR PARKING ZONE ON CREST ROAD
Staff Coordinator: Nicole Jules, Sr. Engineer
1. Establish Limited Two (2) Hour Parking zone on Crest Road from Crenshaw Blvd. easterly to the Saint John Fisher Parish driveway.
2. Adopt Resolution No. 2003- _____, a Resolution of the City Council of the City of Rancho Palos Verdes establishing limited parking on Crest Road from Crenshaw Blvd. easterly to the Saint John Fisher Parish driveway.
On September 30, 2002, the Public Works department received a letter from the Rev. Msgr. David A. Sork requesting a Two (2) Hour Parking zone on Crest Road; a copy of his letter is attached. The request states that Crest Road along the church property is being used as a “used car lot.” Staff has reviewed the street on several different days, both weekdays and weekends. Cars with “For Sale” signs were found parking along the church frontage on a long-term basis.
Crest Road is a public street and curbside parking is allowed unless otherwise posted. There is no defined traffic problem, as there have been no reported accidents in 2002. However, vehicles parked with “For Sale” signs can create a potential hazard, especially during peak hour periods. Not only does St. John Fisher have a heavy weekend traffic demand but also the a.m. and p.m. weekday school traffic is heavy.
At the December 9, 2002 Traffic Committee meeting, the Traffic Committee approved the installation of limited two (2) hour parking signs along Crest Road adjacent to the Church property. A copy of the approved meeting minutes are attached.
Adopting staff’s recommendation will establish a limited two (2) hour parking zone on Crest Road from Crenshaw Blvd. easterly to the Saint John Fisher Parish driveway.
The recommended action will have no negative fiscal impact
