SUBJECT:
Title
PROVIDE DIRECTION TO CITY STAFF ON CAROUSEL TRACT STREET SWEEPING ENFORCEMENT (CITY COUNCIL)

Body
I. SUMMARY

In July of 2016 residents of the Carousel Tract requested that the City Council suspend the parking restrictions on street sweeping times in the tract due to the lack of parking due to construction vehicles. Since that time the parking restrictions in the Carousel Tract have become confusing and ineffective, and have contributed to the decline of street sweeping service in the neighborhood and accumulation of trash and debris. Residents are now asking the City to restart the parking enforcement program.
Staff is suggesting that the City Council express its desire to restore the quality of the street sweeping in the neighborhood, which first requires the return of ticketing for illegal parking on street sweeping days in areas well away from those directly impacted by the remediation work. It also directs Staff to develop the "No Parking" guidelines around the worksite and a public outreach program to reach all the residents in the neighborhood prior to implementation.

II. RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation

1. Declare the City Council's desire to return to normal street sweeping enforcement in the Carousel Tract, except as narrowly modified, in order for street sweeping ticketing to commence throughout the neighborhood; and
2. Direct City Staff to develop a map and protocol for the relief of street sweeping ticketing in the areas immediately surrounding active cluster worksites, with a "no parking" area within 0' to 50' of any sound wall, and a buffer of "no parking enforcement/no sweeping" within 50 to 150 feet of any sound wall, as well as a public outreach campaign to inform the residents of the change.
