SUBJECT: Agenda Report – Ordinance enacting two-hour and four-hour ranked parking zones and a 15-minute loading zone on 11th Street between 6th Avenue and 7th Avenue.

INITIATED BY: Traffic Engineering

Recommendation: Approve an ordinance enacting the following:

Background: New ranked parking spaces were created on 11th Street between 6th Avenue and 7th Avenue as part of the 6th Avenue Flood Abatement Project. Ten spaces were created along the north curb and nine spaces were created along the south curb. The Engineering Department recently received a request from the Royal Café, located at 600 11th Street, to create a loading zone in front of their main entrance to accommodate vehicles dropping off and picking up café customers and to avoid blocking the in-place concrete steps between the street and sidewalk. The loading zone will replace one ranked space that was previously striped by the 6th Avenue Flood Abatement contractor.

Analysis: The Traffic Engineering Division inspected the site and determined the conversion will produce no adverse effects. The new spaces will provide on-street parking for Royal Café customers and Golden Foundry employees.

Financial Considerations: The cost of installing Traffic Control signs on both sides of the street and installing new pavement striping for the loading zone will be derived from the Traffic Engineering operating budget.

Legal Considerations: All ordinances require the approval of Council.

Recommendations/Actions: Approve an ordinance enacting two-hour and four-hour ranked parking zones and a 15-minute ‘Loading Zone’ on 11th Street between 6th Avenue and 7th Avenue.
