Statement of Issue:
On February 18, 2020, City Council voted to "direct staff to institute parking program modifications that would allow those with a disabled parking (DP) placard to park for free in our beach parking lots located along PCH and our downtown parking structures."

The proposed program would allow patrons displaying a DP parking placard or license plate to park in existing marked disabled parking spaces, at no charge, in the following Off-Street City Pay Parking Lots: Blufftop, Dog Beach, Pier Plaza (between 1st & 7th Streets), First Street and Atlanta Avenue, First Street and Walnut Avenue, and Warner Avenue.

Financial Impact:
Estimating the loss in revenue associated with offering parking at no charge to DP vehicles is difficult, since the pay stations in the beach lots do not track payment according to DP vehicles versus non-DP vehicles. However, in the identified parking lots, there are 34 handicap spaces. Furthermore, on average, the typical metered parking space earns ~$3,000 / year.

Recommended Action:
