Editor’s note: I could be wrong, but it looks like they’re saying that despite RPP, demand for parking in some areas of the city outweighs the number of spaces (though not in Glen Park, it should be said). I’m reading through this too quickly, but to me the most important proposed change appears to be this:
SFMTA staff recommends adding a new parking management tool that would provide greater flexibility where needed. This new parking management regulation, which is referred to as “Paid + Permit” parking, would require visitors parking in RPP Areas, where designated by posted signs, to pay to park. Currently visitors are provided a grace period for free parking, usually from one hour to four hours. This new parking management tool would require visitors to pay at meters, where designated by the SFMTA with posted signs, while exempting vehicles displaying a valid parking permit from payment at these on-street parking meters.
“Paid + Permit” parking would not be applied on currently metered streets or to commercial or retail areas where turnover in parking is vital to the economic well-being of the adjacent businesses. This would be a new type of RPP regulation that uses payment, rather than time limits, to discourage long-term parking by non-permit holders. It is a flexible tool that can accommodate various types of visitors while discouraging those who are simply using residential streets for free parking. Implementing this parking management tool would require approval by the SFMTA Board of Directors, just as with other parking regulations. “Paid + Permit” parking would be considered only where the need for flexibility is warranted and there is neighborhood support.
