The City released the recently completed parking study of the Embarcadero, Morro Rock, and Downtown areas. The purpose of this study, conducted by Walker Consultants, is to understand existing parking needs, how parking is currently being used and how to best plan for parking demands moving forward.  The study presents an analysis of existing parking conditions during both summer and off-season periods and includes recommendations for parking management strategies. 


The study found that there a parking challenges—particularly in the waterfront area—that could be addressed with several potential approaches, including paid parking.  


The study will be presented to the Harbor Advisory Board, Public Works Advisory Board and Planning Commission in September.  Input gathered in those meetings and from the public will be shared with City Council during their review in October.  Council will consider the study at that time and provide direction to City staff regarding any potential next steps.  


The $50,000 study was paid for through Parking in Lieu Funds; no General Fund revenues were used to support the effort.
