Re: Removing Parking on Santa Cruz Ave not a good idea

Thank you for your email, Ms. Ambuhl.

The approved plan for sidewalk installation on Santa Cruz Avenue includes on-street parking removal west of Arbor Street to Hillview School (Olive Street). On-street parking will remain between Johnston and Arbor. Based on staff observations, we concur that there is current demand for on-street parking between Johnston and Arbor, thus no changes to parking are proposed at this time in this area.

I hope this helps clarify, but please let us know if you have any further questions.

I agree with my neighbors who state:

I am quite surprised that the city is willing to eliminate all parking on SCA in order to have 8 + ft wide bike lanes and to preserve residential encroachments on the public right of way.
I live across the street from St Raymonds and see a great number of people coming to the Church for services, weddings, and funerals. Same for the Presbyterian church. Plus I see pickups doing rehabs and gardens. I'm an atheist and do my own garden but I'm not a jerk. Where will these people park?
There may be little need for parking from Windsor west to Oliver but I see great demand for parking from Windsor east to Johnson.
Apparently the plan calls for reducing the 8+ ft bike lane near the heritage trees. Maybe we can do the same where parking is a premium, from Windsor to Johnson, and/or carve back the city right of way to allow parking where it is vital.
Speak now. I believe we should accommodate sidewalks, bikes, and parking from Windsor to Johnson.


Best regards,

E. Ambuhl
