The Council will hold a public hearing and, if recommendations are approved, adopt a Resolution amending Section 25B of Resolution No. 56,508-N.S. adding a subsection to extend Residential Preferential Parking Area B to include the south side of Dwight Way between College Avenue and Benvenue Avenue.
The Residential Preferential Parking Program allows for City Council to initiate and/or modify a residential permit parking area. Mayor Tom Bates and Councilmember Gordon Wozniak have initiated the process to add the south side of the block of Dwight Way between College Avenue and Benvenue Avenue to the Residential Permit Parking Area “B”. The eligibility requirements specified in the Berkeley Municipal Code (BMC) have been met: At least 80 percent of the block front is zoned residential and has unlimited parking, and parking surveys of the south side of the block show that at least 75 percent of the available on-street parking spaces are occupied during the mid-morning and mid-afternoon time periods. As required by BMC Section 14.72.060(A), a notice of intent was sent to the affected residents to modify an already designated residential preferential parking area within the existing residential study area boundaries covered by the EIR certified by the City Council on September 27, 1988, in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act.
