SLO of­fers on­line sur­vey about down­town park­ing

The Tribune (SLO) - - Local - BY NICK WIL­SON

San Luis Obispo of­fi­cials are ask­ing the com­mu­nity how best to ad­dress park­ing is­sues to plan for fu­ture growth.

The city is ask­ing the com­mu­nity weigh in on the is­sue through an on­line sur­vey, which in­cludes ques­tions such as “what are the most im­por- tant park­ing is­sues the city should plan for?” and “what is the most press­ing is­sue(s) with how the city man­ages park­ing in the neigh­bor­hoods to­day?”

The City Coun­cil will hold a Nov. 13 meet­ing on on park­ing man­age­ment is­sues and strate­gies lead­ing to the up­com­ing up­date to the Park­ing and Ac­cess Plan start­ing in

2019, ac­cord­ing to the city.

SLO man­ages more than 2,800 park­ing spa­ces down­town and in Rail­road Square. In 2017-18, the city’s park­ing pro­grams brought in more than $5.5 mil­lion in rev­enue and in­cluded ex­pen­di­tures of $4.8 mil­lion, city of­fi­cials stated.

“The last up­date to the city’s Park­ing and Ac­cess Plan was com­pleted in 2011, and changes in the down­town, growth pat­terns in the City, tech­no­log­i­cal changes, Cal Poly stu­dent hous­ing, and other trends have or will im­pact park­ing now and into the fu­ture,” a city news re­lease stated.

The city’s Land Use and Cir­cu­la­tion El­e­ment (LUCE) and Zon­ing Reg­u­la­tions up­dates call for fewer trips by cars and an in­crease in al­ter­na­tive forms of trans­porta­tion, in­clud­ing travel by bi­cy­cle, pub­lic tran­sit or walk­ing.
