TO: Mayor and Council

SUBJECT: Phillips Street - No Parking Anytime restriction

INITIATED BY: Engineering

Recommendation: Approve the attached ordinance that establishes a “No parking Anytime” zone along the West curb of Phillips Street beginning at the south curb of Levy Road and running southerly a distance 795 feet south.

Background: Mr. Roger Ward owns businesses along Phillips Street requesting that a parking restriction be implemented along the west curb because tractor trailers parked on the street blocking access to his driveways and limits two-way traffic.

Analysis: Limiting the parking along the west side of Phillips Street will improve access to the properties along Phillips Street. This will still provide on street parallel parking along the west curb of Phillips Street from Shelby Street north to a point just north of 2085 Phillips Street as noted on the attached drawing. Mr. Roger’s confirmed on August 6, 2013 that he was agreeable to the revision.

Financial Considerations: The cost to install the signs will come out of Traffic Engineering operating budget.

Projected Annual Fiscal Impact Statement: Should any signs be vandalized or damaged, they will be replaced using Traffic Engineering funds.

Legal Considerations: All traffic ordinances require Council approval.

Recommendations/ Actions: Approve the proposed “No Parking Anytime” ordinance for Phillips Street.
