TITLE

Recommendation to request City Attorney to prepare resolution to set operating days and hours for Parking Meter Zones 1 and 1A, pursuant to Section 10.28.130 of the Long Beach Municipal Code, to Monday through Sunday, excluding holidays, during the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., for a maximum of two hours, at a rate of $1.50 per hour.  (District 3)

 

DISCUSSION

City Council approval is requested for the preparation of a Resolution to set operating days and hours for Parking Meter Zones 1 and 1A within the Belmont Shore Parking District, to Monday through Sunday, excluding holidays, during the hours of 10:00 am to 7:00 pm, for a maximum of two hours, at a rate of $1.50 per hour.

 

On February 17, 2022, the Belmont Shore Parking and Business Improvement Area Advisory Commission (BSPBIAAC) voted unanimously to increase the current parking meter fee from $1.00 to $1.50 per hour with no change to the existing operating hours, days, or time limit (Attachment A). The proposed fee is in alignment with the City's parking meter zone standard rates, which range from $1.00 to $2.00 per hour depending on Parking District.

 

A portion of the revenues received through the Belmont Shore Parking Meter Fund Group support operational activities administered by the BSPBIAAC, such as parking meter maintenance, security patrol, litter abatement, landscaping, and sidewalk pressurized steam cleaning. Any additional revenues can support enhancements to the area, including infrastructure improvements, wayfinding and signage, and lighting. All revenues received through this Parking District are required to support expenses associated with parking adjacent enhancements or improvements.

 

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Vanessa S. Ibarra on May 19, 2022 and by Budget Management Officer Nader Kaamoush on May 24, 2022.

 

TIMING CONSIDERATIONS

City Council action is requested on June 21, 2022, to allow for timely rate-setting and implementation of the Parking Meter Zone 1 and 1A Resolution.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

The estimated annual revenue increase resulting from the proposed rate change is projected at $176,300 annually and will be deposited in the Belmont Shore Parking Meter Fund Group in the Public Works Department. This recommendation has no staffing impact beyond the normal budgeted scope of duties and is consistent with existing City Council priorities. There is no local job impact associated with this recommendation.

 

SUGGESTED ACTION

Approve recommendation.
