STAFF REPORT — PLANNING CITY OF TEMECULA CITY COUNCIL OLD TOWN STEERING SUBCOMMITTEE DECEMBER 10, 2019 Old Town Parking Management Plan Update LONG RANGE APPLICATION NO. LR17-1502 Prepared by: Eric Jones, Associate Planner APPLICATION INFORMATION: PROJECT: Update to the 2010 Old Town Parking Management Plan LOCATION: Old Town Temecula BACKGROUND On August 27, 2019, the City Council Old Town Steering Subcommittee (Mayor Michael S. Naggar and Council Member Zak Schwank) reviewed a presentation for the recently completed Old Town Temecula Parking Management Plan update. The subcommittee requested that the Old Town Local Review Board (OTLRB) also review the presentation. In addition, the subcommittee identified four topics they wanted the OTLRB to consider and provide feedback. Staff met with the OTLRB on October 14, 2019 at a regularly scheduled meeting. The following analysis is a summary of the Board's discussion. ANALYSIS The City Council Old Town Steering Subcommittee requested that the OTLRB review and provide comments on the following topics: • Old Town Parking Management Plan Update Presentation • Relocation of the Sixth Street Farmers Market to the Civic Center • Additional ADA Spaces at the Community Theater and Children's Museum • Consideration of Paid Parking in Areas Exceeding 85% Utilization The subcommittee directed staff to retum with a summary of the Board's discussion of each discussion item. A bullet summary for each of these items is provided below: 01d Town Parking Management Plan Update Presentation • OTLRB members made the following observations, which were not included or addressed in the study: o People, in particular theater patrons, regularly park on Pujol Street and nearby apartment complexes and walk into the Downtown Core district. The study needs to be revised to include Pujol Street and surrounding area. o Several additional illegal parking lots (e.g. lot behind Espadin) need to also be included in the study. o The 2007 and 2010 parking studies included stakeholder surveys. The 2019 update should also have included a survey. This would have provided a deeper understanding of where people park and why. • Old Town has a parking distribution problem. Underutilized parking is located adjacent to over utilized parking in many instances. • Overall parking signage throughout Old Town needs to be improved (also identified as a near term recommendation). In addition, the boundaries of the area designated as "2 Hour" parking within the Civic Center structure is confusing because some visitors believe there is a two hour time limit throughout all spaces in the structure. In addition, the fourth floor is identified as "City Employee Only" leaving visitors to question where and when they can park. Relocation of the Sixth Street Farmers Market to the Civic Center • Moving the Farmers Market to the Civic Center would require another closure of Mercedes Street. Closing Mercedes Street causes too much disruption to the traffic circulation in Old Town. • Instead, the Stampede parking lot should be considered as a possible location. This parking lot appears to have adequate space to allow any future expansions of the market as well as plentiful parking both at the Stampede parking lot and at the nearby Civic Center parking structure. It will also activate the south end of Old Town on Saturday mornings. Additional ADA Spaces at the Community Theater and Children's Museum • The Board indicated that ADA parking at the Community Theater and Children's Museum is sufficient. Consideration of Paid Parking in Areas Exceeding 85% Utilization • Start with timed parking and then move to paid once timed parking is no longer effective. • A three-hour time limit is satisfactory. Timed parking could be implemented at select hours of the day. For example, timed parking could be required during specific hours, and then removed so there are no ovemight time limits. RECOMMENDATION The study findings coupled with past studies indicate that demand for parking is going to continue to increase. Staff recommends that the City Council Old Town Steering Subcommittee review and discuss the comments provided by the OTLRB. Staff also recommends beginning implementation of the near -term recommendations provided by Fehr and Peers related to the development of a comprehensive signage plan and the establishment of time limits and or metered parking in specific high use locations. Other near term recommendations, including establishment of a parking Page 2 C\UseA.Srtllay polln ktAppData'EMal Nl l crocaliWindows,lhetCachecon\ent Outlook\UNQZWIYCW final Stan rg Com mcttee Staff Rcpor l00]ldoa district, should also be discussed. Additionally, staff recommends that when the next study (2-3 years) is completed that study will include, stakeholder surveys, an expanded count to include Pujol Street, and a collection of counts for all illegally parked vehicles. cwmrswalry pollar oppDeta'oul'KaoaftWi mo Page 3 QnwYCvPinal seenng CommOna Slag Repon (001)Aoa
