CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 21

Parking of Cars for Sale
Jon Elam, City Manager
Elam, City Manager
the City Manager to work with the General Manager of BART to allow use
on weekend and holidays of the BART owned lot at Dainty Avenue and Walnut
Boulevard for the parking of cars for sale.
has, over the years, received complaints regarding the sale of cars by
private individuals on public and private properties that violate the
City Municipal Code. Our
Code Enforcement Officer, Dave McGee, has several slides he will show
that demonstrate this use. While
staff realizes this is a convenience for people who wish to sell their
cars that they often group up and cause problems.
has been suggested that a site be identified for use on weekends that
would cause a minimal level of traffic disruption.
That site is the BART parking lot located north of Dainty Avenue
on the east side of Walnut Boulevard.
I reviewed this idea with Councilmember Gomes, who said BART has
agreements with cities and that BART may be interested in entering into
a lease for their lot with the City for this use.
I have written the BART General Manager, Thomas Margro, to explore
staff goes too far down this road, staff wants to make sure the City Council
concurs with this use idea. If
you do, I would ask your support to develop a use agreement with BART
and bring it back to the City Council for consideration.
