Timed Parking Spaces Installed in front of The Frame Maker on Reynard Way
Is the same vehicle parked in front of your business for several hours every day? Have you noticed customers circling the block looking for a nearby parking space because someone parked their car in front of your store for the entire day?
The Frame Maker business owner Samantha Atlas found herself in this situation and asked the City of San Diego for timed parking adjacent to her business at 3102 Reynard Way.
A Parking Duration Study was undertaken by City of San Diego traffic engineers on Reynard Way for both the north and south side of Redwood Street. Following are the findings:
Reynard Way (Eagle Street to Redwood Street):
Average Occupancy = 94%
(Total Hours Occupied by all Vehicles x Hours Observable per Vehicle) = 45hrs x 48hrs
Average Duration = 7.5 hours per parker
(Total Hours Occupied by all Vehicles / Number of Parkers) = 45hrs x 6 parkers
Average Turnover = 1 vehicles per space
(Number of Parkers / Capacity) = 6 / 6
Redwood Street (Falcon Street to Reynard Way):
Average Occupancy = 91%
(Total Hours Occupied by all Vehicles x Hours Observable per Vehicle) = 36hrs x 40hrs
Average Duration = 6.05 hours per parker
(Total Hours Occupied by all Vehicles / Number of Parkers) = 36hrs x 5 parkers
Average Turnover = 1.2 vehicles per space
(Number of Parkers / Capacity) = 6 / 5
Due to the high Average Occupancy percentages on both sides of the street, it was recommended time limit parking be installed to improve the turnover in this area along Reynard Way.
