Agenda watch: Placer supervisors, Truckee Art Commission, Truckee Donner PUD meet this week
TAHOE CITY, Calif. – The Placer County Board of Supervisors will be discussing expansion of the Pilot Parking Exemption Program during its Tuesday, April 4 meeting.
“The purpose of the PPEP is to support exemptions to parking regulations to spur redevelopment in the Town Centers and support strategies identified in the Resort Triangle Transportation Plan,” the staff report states.
The resort triangle is defined as the area shared by State Routes (SR) 89, 267, and 28 in eastern Placer County. The parking part of the plan provides parking minimums for new projects.
“The RTTP notes that ‘Overall, the North Tahoe commercial centers have an adequate number of parking spaces, so long as management strategies can result in better use of these spaces. While parking at popular recreation sites (e.g., beaches) reaches capacity on busy days, expanding parking would only result in larger filled parking facilities, increased traffic levels, and the potential for greater overcrowding…’ The overall strategy is to better manage existing parking to provide parking flexibility to encourage non-auto mobility options and encourage redevelopment.,” the staff report adds.
The PPEP was adopted on April 13, 2021, and is set to expire on April 30, 2023. The supervisors will decide whether or not to expand the pilot program for a year.
The Placer County Board of Supervisors will be meeting on Tuesday, April 4 at 9:00 a.m.
