Ocean Vista parking change | New
Vehicle speed and limited visibility prompted City Council to impose a parking restriction on Ocean Vista Way.
“When you get there you walk down Ocean Vista and you go turn left onto Beach Drive, you can’t see around because of the cars,” Councilor Tita Montero said.
The Transportation Advisory Board has looked into the parking issue at the intersection of Ocean Vista Way and Beach Drive and has come to the conclusion that parking on the west side of Ocean Vista Way should be removed, the director of operations said. public works Dale McDowell at Monday’s meeting. “Vehicles park on the grassy shoulder next to the Tides chain link fence, narrowing the traffic lanes to just 13 feet wide.”
Over the past year and a half, people have started parking on the grass “when it’s really not necessary,” McDowell said. “There’s normal parking on this side of the street, up to the ADA ramp and that’s as far as we want it to go. We would therefore sign everything beyond that point.
The advisory commission recommended designating the area as “no parking on this side of the street” from the existing asphalt ramp for Americans with disabilities to the end of the fence.
The change will affect three spaces, McDowell said.
Mayor Jay Barber and Councilors Randy Frank, Tom Horning, Tita Montero, David Posalski and Steve Wright unanimously approved the parking lot change. Dana Phillips was absent.
