FISCAL IMPLICATIONS

 

There is no fiscal impact to the General Fund. Sufficient funds are available in FY 2020 Road Fund accounts 0023-4005-5280500 (Road Signs) and 0023-4001-5280000 (Special Department Expense) to install the necessary signage.

 

CONTRACT HISTORY

 

None.

 

REASONS FOR RECOMMENDATION

 

Sycamore Avenue at San Martin Avenue is a County maintained intersection located in an unincorporated area of San Martin. Currently, motorists park along the dirt shoulder area on this portion of Sycamore Avenue to patronize a market on one side of the street and a food truck on the opposite side of the street, resulting in erosion and deterioration of the edge of the road shoulder.

 

Area residents requested County staff to investigate the possibility of establishing a no parking zone to prevent parking at this location. County Traffic Engineering and Operations (TEO) staff conducted a field investigation and site evaluation at this location and concluded that establishing a no parking zone along the shoulder of Sycamore Ave (East side) from San Martin Avenue to a point 550 feet northerly thereof is justified. The recommended parking restriction will prevent shoulder parking and provide more orderly vehicular movements along Sycamore Avenue.

 

CHILD IMPACT

 

The recommended traffic action will have a positive impact on children and youth for the Every Child Safe indicator by providing for more orderly vehicular movements along Sycamore Avenue.

 

SENIOR IMPACT

 

The recommended traffic action will provide for more orderly vehicular movements, positively impacting all motorists including seniors.

 

SUSTAINABILITY IMPLICATIONS

 

The recommended action will have no/neutral sustainability implications.

 

CONSEQUENCES OF NEGATIVE ACTION

 

The recommended resolution will not be adopted and the recommended traffic control measures will not be implemented.

 

STEPS FOLLOWING APPROVAL

 

The Clerk of the Board shall take the following actions:

1.              Send notification of the completed processing to: Ananth Prasad, Roads and Airports Department, Roads and Signal Operations Division; and Juan Gallardo, Office of the Sheriff.

2.  Forward one approved copy of the transmittal to Captain Chris Armstrong, California Highway Patrol, Hollister Gilroy Office, 740 Renz Lane, Gilroy, CA 95021.
