Laureola Park parking limits proposed
February 08, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Laureola Park patrons frustrated by a lack of space in the parking lot due to nearby property owners and business employees taking them up may receive a reprieve in the form of new restrictions.

The San Carlos City Council Monday night will consider a recommendation by Parks and Recreation Director Christine Boland to establish a three-hour parking zone at the park between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. every day except Sundays and holidays.

City employees working at the park have recently asked for the restrictions and both park users and parents of preschoolers there can’t park in the city-owned lot because other cars taking up the spaces all day each weekday, Boland wrote in a staff report to the City Council.

The lack of parking is “causing undue stress on parents attempting to retrieve their children in a timely manner,” Boland wrote.

City staff got nearby property owners to temporarily move business vehicles to their own lots but the situation slipped back because there wasn’t enforcement. Police have agreed to patrol the parking limit at the park if it is established.

The current space shortage isn’t the first parking challenge at Laureola Park. In October 2000, the City Council restricted overnight parking after then-chief Jim Granucci received numerous complaints about vehicles being stored in the lot.

If imposed, the new three-hour limit will have a small financial cost for ongoing maintenance but a small amount of revenue will also come in from parking tickets.

The San Carlos City Council meets 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 10 at City Hall, 600 Elm St., San Carlos.
