Subject:                      Authorizing the Establishment of a “No Parking” Zone on Lakeview Way, Emerald Hills in Unincorporated San Mateo County





Adopt a resolution establishing a 50-foot “No Parking” zone on Lakeview Way (Road 393B) in Emerald Hills in the unincorporated area of San Mateo County.




Your Board has adopted similar resolutions designating parking restrictions.


Section 22507 et al. of the California Vehicle Code and Section 7.30.010 of the County of San Mateo Ordinance Code provides that your Board may adopt resolutions that establish no parking zones to prohibit or restrict the stopping, parking, or standing of vehicles.


The Department of Public Works (Department) received a parking restriction request to restrict 150 feet of parking near a sharp turn on Lakeview Way impeding vehicle travel and obstructing sight distance.



Department staff evaluated the request, sought feedback from the community and determined that a 50-foot “No Parking” zone on Lakeview Way (Road 393B) would benefit the community. Attachment A details the community engagement process that resulted in the recommendation of a 50-foot “No Parking” zone, which preserves as much street parking as possible while allowing for greater sight distance and vehicle clearance.


The Department recommends adoption of a resolution to restrict parking at this location.


The location of parking zones and other traffic restrictions on County-maintained streets are currently shown on maps in the Department of Public Works office and will be made available in list form on maps on the Department’s website. The master list will be updated to reflect the recommended changes, if your Board approves the proposed resolution.


County Counsel has reviewed and approved the resolution as to form.


The cost of installing signs and painting parking zone markings varies, but averages approximately $550 per parking zone. Costs are included in the Fiscal Year 2019-20 Road Fund Adopted Budget. There is no impact to the General Fund.
