Pine Grove Square Parking Analysis

Pine Grove Square Parking Analysis

The City Council of the City of Sebastopol has scheduled review and discussion of a parking analysis prepared in conjunction with the ‘Pine Grove Square’ project concepts.  The parking analysis is available for review on the City web site and at City Hall.  You can review the study by clicking HERE.
 
Background
 
A City Council Subcommittee has been reviewing the concept of redeveloping several City-owned downtown parking lots (the ‘South Main,’ ‘Park and Ride,’ and ‘Chamber’ parking lots bordered by Burnett Street, Petaluma Avenue, and South Main Street), with a mixed-use project that would provide needed housing, establish street-front commercial uses along the site’s South Main Street frontage, improve circulation, and generate net revenue. Conceptual alternatives range from 51 units and 7,500 sq. ft. of commercial space, to 69 units and 12,550 sq. ft. of commercial space in an alternative concept. On-site parking would be provided to serve the uses. Existing public parking on the site would be removed; potentially, with any owner agreement, several privately-owned parcels including the Chamber of Commerce property might be incorporated into the project. 
 
Parking analysis 
 
In June 2017 the City Council discussed the project concepts and directed that prior to proceeding with other consideration of the concepts, a parking analysis should be conducted to review current utilization of parking on the site and in the area, and how the concepts would affect parking.  W-Trans, a traffic engineering firm, was retained to perform the study, which is now available for public review. 
 
The City Council will receive and discuss the parking analysis at their regular meeting on:
 
Tuesday, January 16, 2018
6:00 P.M.
Sebastopol Youth Annex
425 Morris Street
Sebastopol, CA 95472
 
Anyone interested may attend and be heard at this meeting. Written comments are also welcome.
