Title
Proposed repeal of Preferential Parking District S. (District 4)

Discussion
The Traffic Engineering Division has received a request from the residents of Preferential Parking District “S” for the repeal of their preferential parking district and the removal of the accompanying one-hour parking restrictions. Preferential Parking District “S” comprises the residential portion of the 4100 block of Wilton Street immediately south of Long Beach Community Hospital. In response to the residents’ request, staff conducted a parking review of the area during various times of the day. This review confirmed the residents’ contention that hospital employees and patrons are no longer significantly impacting on-street parking availability for residents of Wilton Street. In addition, staff verified that no preferential parking permits have been issued for Preferential Parking District “S” within the last three years. Based on these findings, the City Traffic Engineer has concluded that the parking conditions in the neighborhood that warranted the establishment of the District are no longer present and that a substantial number of eligible residents are no longer participating in the preferential parking program. A petition circulated among the residential properties within Preferential Parking District “SI’ revealed that 87 percent of the residents are in favor of the repeal of the preferential parking district and its accompanying one-hour parking restriction. Therefore, in consideration of the above findings, the City Traffic Engineer recommends the repeal of Preferential Parking District “S” and the removal of the accompanying one-hour parking restriction. The subject location is highlighted on the attached vicinity map.
This letter was reviewed by Assistant City Attorney Michael J. Mais on December 16, 2004 and Budget Management Officer David Wodynski on December 17,2004.
