The Ad Hoc Committee was established in March 2019 by City Council Resolution 10253 for the purpose of working with stakeholders on possible solutions for the Historic District parking issues. The Committee of 11 met monthly for one year to identify issues, evaluate and discuss potential solutions, and to provide recommendations to the City Council to address existing parking problems in the Historic District.
The Committee’s Problem Statement:
Employees, patrons and visitors to Historic District destinations are occupying on-street parking spaces in the adjacent residential areas throughout the day and into the early morning hours, resulting in constrained parking options for residents along with many associated nuisance factors which adversely impact residential quality of life. Specific areas of the residential district experience different and sometimes greater impacts, depending on their proximity to Sutter Street.
