CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 19

Meeting Date: May 9, 2000

Subject/Title: Oak Street Safety/Downtown Parking

Submitted by: Engineering: J. Stevenson

Economic Development: H. Sword

Downtown Parking Task Force

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager

RECOMMENDATION

Authorize the City Engineer to:

  1. Install the crosswalk signs, striping and curb depressions for the High School crosswalk on Oak Street.
  2. Install a 3-way stop with crosswalks at Oak and Third Street, which will include curb pop-outs and handicap ramps.
  3. Approve the restriping of on street parking as recommended by the City Engineer to increase the total number of parking stalls downtown by 24.

Direct staff to continue working with the Downtown Parking Task Force to look for opportunities to increase parking downtown.

PREVIOUS ACTION

On March 28, 2000 the City Council directed staff to analyze parking and safety measures on Oak Street in addition to the crosswalk for the High School.

BACKGROUND

Downtown parking has been a problem for City Councils in Brentwood for years. There never seems to be enough. Staff generated an existing condition parking exhibit in anticipation of returning to Council with safety improvements on Oak Street. In generating the exhibit and analyzing and walking Oak Street, staff discovered several opportunities for increasing parking availability downtown. The Exhibit attached describes a 1st-phase to increasing safety on Oak Street and increasing parking in the downtown area by 24 spaces.

The total cost of these improvements is estimated at $45,000. After consultation with the Task Force, staff recommends that the parking lot at the corner of First and Chestnut Street be postponed pending further discussion and evaluation by the Task Force. Restriping costs on Oak Street downtown will be funded through the General Fund. Most of the restriping work on Oak Street will be performed by City forces.
