Gina Rozenski, Redevelopment Analyst, solicited comments regarding Request for Qualifications and Proposals for the Downtown Parking Study. Ms. Rozenski proposed four downtown areas for possible parking areas:
· The northeast corner of Oak Street & Brentwood Blvd.
· The northwest corner of Oak Street & First Street.
· The southwest corner of Oak Street & First Street.
· An area behind businesses on First Street adjacent to the First Street City Lot.
Mayor McPoland stated that he felt it was very important to have a joint Council or Agency/Planning Commission meeting to discuss the Downtown Specific Plan rather than just move forward with a parking plan.
Member Hill commented that he felt the area on the corner of Oak and Walnut might be another area of study.
Chairman McPoland suggested the quadrant including Rich’s Drive-In should be extended all the way to the corner.
The Agency directed staff to extend the parking area on the northeast corner of Oak Street and Brentwood Blvd. to the corner, include the lot on the corner of Walnut and Oak as a fifth option and choose a consultant for the Downtown Parking Plan, so that they can work in conjunction with the planning Commission, Council and the consultant for the Downtown Specific Plan.
