Council to Discuss Permit Parking for the Residential Area near the <br />High School <br />On April 4th during the regularly scheduled Town Council meeting, the Council will revisit its March 7th <br />decision to expand permit parking to residential neighborhoods near the high school. If you live on one <br />of the following streets, your neighborhood may be eligible for residential permit parking or expansion <br />of its current residential permit parking program: Johnson Avenue, Los Gatos Blvd, Loma Alta Avenue, <br />Stacia Street, Wheeler Avenue, Charles Street, Bella Vista Avenue, Simons Way, and Pleasant Street. <br />If you live on a street near the high school with permit parking, your parking enforcement hours may <br />change from a 7:00 a.m. to a 9:00 a.m. start time and the parking enforcement period may become <br />Monday through Friday during the academic year with non-enforcement during the summer. <br />Neighborhoods currently without permit parking and not wishing to have permit parking will have an <br />opportunity to “opt out” of the proposed program. <br />The agenda and reports for the April 4, 2017 Council meeting will be available in the early evening on <br />March 30, 2017: You are welcome to <br />submit comments or make testimony as described on the agenda. <br />Here are some common questions and answers: <br />Question: Why is this happening? <br />Answer: Impacts from high school students parking on neighborhood streets have increased the <br />interest in residential permits. To facilitate the implementation of parking permits for affected streets, <br />the Town will provide for broad participation through a streamlined process. <br /> <br />Question: Will permit parking be in effect during the summer, on weekends, and on school holidays? <br />Answer: As currently proposed, permit parking will only be enforced on days when the high school is in <br />session between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. <br /> <br />Question: How many permits may I buy? Do I have to buy permits? <br />Answer: You may purchase up to four (4) individual parking permits. Two (2) guest passes are provided <br />with the purchase of your first permit. Permits are specific to the vehicle they are purchased for and <br />may not be shared. Guest passes may only be used on a guest’s vehicle. It is not required that you or <br />your guests display a permit to park in a permit area. If you park in the restricted area during <br />enforcement times, you will be subject to the time limitations without a permit. <br /> <br />Question: What if my block votes not to be included? <br />Answer: If 25% of residents on a block vote not to be included, the Town will work with those block(s) <br />to explore options. <br /> <br /> <br />For additional questions contact: Jackie Rose at 408-354-6853 or <br />ATTACHMENT 3
