CHAPTER 14 MOTOR VEHICLES AND TRAFFIC.*
Article VII. Stopping, Standing or Parking Restricted or Prohibited on Certain Streets.
Sec. 14-7-10.2. Criteria for designation of preferential parking areas.
(a) An area shall be deemed eligible for consideration as a preferential
parking area if: surveys and studies prepared at the direction of the city
traffic engineer and objective criteria establish that the area is adversely
affected by commuter vehicles for any extended period during the day or night,
on weekends, or during holidays. Additionally, the police department shall be
given the opportunity to comment on any observed problems in the area and the
comments shall be incorporated into the study report.
(b) In determining
whether an area identified as eligible for preferential permit parking may be
designated as a preferential parking area, the traffic engineer and the city
council shall take into account factors which include, but are not limited to,
(1) The extent of the desire and need of the residents for
preferential permit parking;
(2) The extent to which legal on-street parking
spaces are occupied by motor vehicles during the period proposed for parking
(3) The extent to which motor vehicles parking in the area
during the period proposed for parking regulations are commuter vehicles rather
than resident vehicles or customer vehicles; and
(4) The extent to which
customer vehicles and motor vehicles registered to residents cannot be
accommodated by the number of available off-street parking spaces. (Ord. No.
1221, § 6 (part).)
