You may remember that at this time last year, we were collecting signatures to gather support to bring Residential Parking Permits (RPPs) to the neighborhood. We submitted will over the minimum number of signatures required to initiate the process, and the SFMTA performed an engineering survey during the month of December, 2013. After the analysis, it was determined that the proposed RPP Zone Q (encompassing most of NoPA and Alamo Square) qualifies to move forward with the planning stages by having greater than 80% of street parking occupied, while less than 50% of the occupancy is by vehicles registered to the area (Occupancy Survey Summary).
The next steps are to determine the times and duration for non-permitted vehicles within the zone. We have come up with 2 options that cover fairly well the initial feedback we received:
- Monday-Friday, 9:00am-6:00pm, 2 hour limit (3 hours on/adjacent to commercial corridors and parks) RPP Proposal #1
- Monday-Friday, 9:00am-10:00pm, 2 hour limit RPP Proposal #2
We are asking that if you live within the zone identified, to please complete THIS SURVEY.
The survey results will be analyzed, published and utilized by NOPNA, ASNA and the SFMTA in coming up with a final proposal to bring before you in a final discussion led by the SFMTA in late summer/early autumn.
Required Findings to Establish a New RPP Area
Overview of RPP Legislative Process for a New Area
How much does a permit cost?
Are visitor permits available?
Can we get a permit for our Nanny/Caregiver?
I do not live within the area but I work there and require a vehicle for work, can I still get a permit?
Join us at any of 3 meetings to discuss upgrades to park paths and develop an application to be submitted to SF Rec and Park’s Community Opportunity Fund Grant Program. This is a program of the 2012 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond. We will discuss:
- Feedback on what types of improvements are needed
- Preliminary ideas includes:
- Wayfinding/ signage for all users (pedestrians, cyclists, locals, visitors)
- Re-paving the South pedestrian-only path, including improved drainage
- Improved lighting, including quantity and quality
- Increased amenities: benches, trash + recycle cans, bike racks
- Design solutions, including location, materials and detail concepts
