City Code calls for the Treasurer's Office to conductperiodic studies on parking, which take certain factors into account, includingaccess to public transportation. We funded the study because we are interestedin ensuring future parking needs are coordinated with public transitdevelopment.
The North-South Metrolink extension is one of the mostimportant projects needed in our region, and Treasurer Jones is committed toworking with our region's leaders on this issue.
The Parking Commission is the authority for overseeingpublic parking, including planning and coordinating policies, programs andoperations for any parking facility or spaces owned, leased or managed by theCity's Parking Division.
