  • CITY OF LOS ANGELES INTER-DEPARTMENTAL MEMORANDUM

    December 23, 2015Date:

    The Honorable City Council c/o City Clerk, Room 395, City Hall Attention: Honorable Mike Bonin, Chair, Transportation Committee

    To:

    Seleta J. Reynolds, General Manager Department of Transportation

    From:

    ESTABLISHMENT OF TEMPORARY PREFERENTIAL PARKING DISTRICT NO. 238 NEAR THE INTERSECTION OF RICHLAND AVENUE AND SEPULVEDA BOULEVARD IN COUNCIL DISTRICT 5

    SUBJECT:

    SUMMARY

    This report recommends the establishment of Temporary Preferential Parking District (TPPD) No. 238 near the intersection of Richland Avenue and Sepulveda Boulevard in West Los Angeles.

    RECOMMENDATION

    FIND that there is a substantial adverse impact from clients to the businesses along Sepulveda Boulevard and from construction related parkers, who monopolize the on-street parking preventing residents from parking near their homes which is a situation from which the residents deserve immediate relief.

    1.

    FIND that the establishment of this TPPD is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) as a Class 1 Categorical Exemption, under Article lll.l.a.3 of the 2002 Los Angeles City CEQA Guidelines.

    2.

    ADOPT the attached RESOLUTION, pursuant to Section 80.58.d of the Los Angeles Municipal Code (L.A.M.C.), establishing TPPD No. 238 for:

    3.

    a. Richland Street between Sepulveda Boulevard and Cotner Avenue b. Cotner Avenue between Richland Avenue and Pickford Street c. Pickford Street between Cotner Avenue and the cul-de-sac west of Cotner Street d. Sepulveda Boulevard between Exposition Boulevard and Richland Street, except for the

    west side of Sepulveda Boulevard between Exposition Boulevard and Pearl Street

    AUTHORIZE the "NO PARKING EXCEPT, 1 HOUR PARKING 8 AM-6 PM, MONDAY - FRIDAY; DISTRICT NO. 238 PERMITS EXEMPT; HOLIDAYS ENFORCED" restriction for use on all street segments in the District.

    4

    INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) to initiate the necessary procedures for the preparation and sale of parking permits to residents within the boundaries of TPPD No. 238, as specified in Section 80.58 of the L.A.M.C.

    5.

    DIRECT the LADOT, upon City Council adoption of the Resolution establishing the District, to post or remove the authorized parking restrictions upon receipt and verification of the requisite petition without further actions by the City Council.

    6.

  • The Honorable City Council December 23, 20152

    DISCUSSION

    On December 12, 2013, Councilmember Koretz sent a letter to the LADOT requesting establishment of this TPPD to provide the residents immediate relief from excessive non-resident parking caused by non­ resident vehicles brought to the area to visit or work at nearby businesses or from construction personnel for the Expo Line. The letter was modified on November 12, 2015 as the requested District exceeded five blocks. The Councilmember believes that residents deserve immediate relief from this situation until a permanent solution can be found and that the establishment of this TPPD is the only viable and the most rapid option to address the problem. When establishment of this District was originally considered, no parking districts were established or contemplated east of Sepulveda Boulevard. With the expansion of Metro's Expo Line, several TPPDs are being established which will effectively eliminate reasonable on-street parking options for the residents of Sepulveda Boulevard. To eliminate the possibility that residents on Sepulveda Boulevard will be isolated and without reasonable parking options, the LADOT recommends including the residential frontage on the east side of Sepulveda between Exposition Boulevard (southern leg) and Pearl Street and both sides of Sepulveda Boulevard between Pearl Street and Richland Avenue in this TPPD.

    BACKGROUND

    The establishment of TPPD No. 238, pursuant to LAMC Section 80.58.d, is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) as a Class 1 Categorical Exemption, under Article lll.l.a.3 of the 2002 Los Angeles City CEQA Guidelines. Parking will continue to be available to non-residents for one hour periods on weekdays between 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM which should improve parking turn over and lessen the parking impacts caused by non-residents.

    The City Council has the authority, pursuant to LAMC Section 80.58.d, to establish TPPDs by resolution "to provide relief for residents who suffer an excessive parking impact... as the result of any conditions which impact fewer than six blocks and which, in the judgment of the Councilmember of the District and after consultation with the Parking Administrator, deserve immediate relief until a permanent solution can be found."

    COORDINATION

    Councilmember Koretz and his staff have consulted with LADOT regarding the parking problems in this area and have concluded that a TPPD is the best possible solution to address the residents' parking concerns at this time.

    FISCAL IMPACT STATEMENT

    Revenue from the sale of permits will cover the cost of implementing and administering TPPD No. 238. Should motorists violate the posted signs, General Fund revenue may result.
