Parking Reconfiguration Changes on Fort Stockton Dr and Goldfinch St
Parking Reconfiguration Changes on Fort Stockton Drive and Goldfinch Street
Mission Hills Parking Advisory Committee at work! – Requests from business owners reviewed by Mission Hills Parking Advisory Committee
Separate requests were made by business owners in the 900 block of Fort Stockton Drive and 4000 Goldfinch Street to change existing parking spaces on these blocks. The Mission Hills Parking Advisory Committee reviewed the existing and potential curb usage during a site visit with City of San Diego traffic engineers in May 2022.
The recommendations were then considered and approved by the Mission Hills Parking Advisory Committee at its May meeting.
900 Block of Fort Stockton Drive:
An unmetered and unmarked section of an “abandoned driveway” in front of 910 Fort Stockton Drive created an inefficient use of parking for businesses in the area. The draft diagram above, provided by the City of San Diego’s Department of Sustainability and Mobility, displays the recommendations for the new metered parking spaces that will be created in the abandoned driveway.
Along with the installation of a new 2-hour parking metered space, the City’s recommendation also includes: the existing green zone and blue zones on the east side of the segment may be switched to meet ADA standards, the green curb may be extended to provide two standard 22 feet spaces, and the existing 16’ 2-hour parking stall may be increased to meet 22 feet standards.
4000 Block of Goldfinch Street:
The diagram below of the existing curb, also provided by the City of San Diego, was reviewed by the Mission Hills Parking Advisory Committee who voted to use the City of San Diego traffic engineers’ curbside parking reconfiguration on the east side of the 4000 block of Goldfinch Street creating four contiguous 30-minute parking spaces to the north and add two 2-hour metered parking spaces in the remaining southern-most parking spaces. Meter enforced signage will read: Enforced Monday through Saturday 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. No meter enforcement on Sundays and City Holidays.
The 4th and 5th parking spaces (green and grey curb) will be switched to maintain continuity of curb type, resulting in contiguous green and grey curbs.
An additional request to convert one or two of the green curbs to 15 minute parking, was denied by the City.
UPDATE – June 23, 2022:
We are happy to share your requests and the work of the Mission Hills Parking Advisory Committee were reviewed by traffic engineers from the City of San Diego Department of Sustainability and Mobility and will result in parking space increases on the 900 block of Fort Stockton Drive and time limited parking changes on Goldfinch Street.
