D.

Consideration of Resolution No. 2008-05:  A resolution adopting the Downtown Flagstaff Management Plan.

 

 

RECOMMENDED ACTION:

Read Resolution No. 2008-05 by title only.

Adopt Resolution No. 2008-05.

 

Michael Kerski, Community Investment Director, explained that it would be problematic to implement the parking meters and the neighborhood parking districts at the same time as there are eight distinct neighborhoods that would have to be approached to see if they want to establish a parking district.  Doing so would take considerable time and would hold up the entire Downtown Flagstaff Management Plan.

 

A middle ground approach would be to:  1) direct staff to facilitate dialogue between downtown businesses and the adjacent neighborhoods in concert with the ongoing Traffic Commission process on neighborhood parking; 2) commit to acting on an ordinance authorizing a parking permit district prior to installing downtown parking meters; 3) direct staff to install signage and pavement markings that are agreed to as part of the dialogue between neighborhoods, the downtown businesses and the Traffic Commission; and  4) direct staff to utilize parking meter, parking ticket and/or commuter pass revenues for downtown neighborhood parking enforcement.

 

The possibility of adding language to Section 10 of the resolution stating that Council will discuss adding a downtown parking garage to the five-year capital improvement program during this year’s budget process was discussed.

 

Councilmember White moved to amend the resolution according to Michael Kerski’s  recommendations as listed above, seconded by Councilmember Haughey.

 

The following individuals addressed the Council regarding this issue:

 

 

Steven Knutson, Flagstaff resident.

 

John DeNune, downtown business owner.

 

Charlotte Welch, Flagstaff resident.

 

Thaddeus Baker, Flagstaff resident.

 

Nancy Wardell, downtown business owner.

 

Some of the comments and concerns relayed to the Council included:

 

 

The downtown plan does not protect the historic fabric of the downtown community, nor does it support the downtown merchants.

 

Hiring new employees to implement the plan is ill-conceived considering there is a greater need for new employees in other areas of the City.

 

A parking garage, not parking meters, is the answer to downtown parking problems.

 

Not all downtown stakeholders have been involved in the planning process.

 

Three adjacent neighborhoods are impacted by the plan, not eight as noted by staff.

 

The residential parking permit district ordinance needs to catch up with the rest of the plan, and be brought back for Council approval in March.

 

North-end residents will be submitting their own ordinance language for the residential parking permit district, as staff’s draft does not meet their goals.

 

Area neighbors have not been invited or allowed to participate in the process.

 

Downtown business patrons are against the meters and feel that the free token system is too complicated. 

 

Unbiased surveys need to be conducted of all downtown merchants and their patrons.

 

The parking meters are needed and will alleviate parking problems that downtown merchants face daily.

 

Michael Kerski reported that staff is planning to have the Traffic Commission review the ordinance and come back for Council’s consideration on March 4, 2008.

 

Councilmembers asked staff to provide periodic reports on the progress and implementation of the plan, and particularly the residential parking permit district piece, and to take an active role in facilitating discussions between all parties involved in the process.

 

Patricia Boomsma, City Attorney, clarified additional changes to the resolution as follows:

 

 

A resolution adopting the Downtown Flagstaff Management Plan.

 

Whereas, Downtown is a shared community resource and asset and there has been a long history of parking and management issues, most recently documented in the Chance Report in 1998 and it has been acknowledged that it is a problem that is difficult to solve; and

 

Whereas, the Downtown Shopping District and the surrounding eight neighborhoods are interconnected and what happens in one area directly impacts the other; and

 

 

Section 6.  That the City Council hereby directs staff to install 2 hour parking zones in neighborhoods adjacent to the Downtown as soon as possible but no later than 1 week prior to the activation of downtown meters.

 

Section 6. That the City Council hereby: directs staff to facilitate dialogue between downtown businesses and the adjacent neighborhoods in concert with the ongoing Traffic Commission process on Neighborhood Parking; commits to acting on a Parking Permit District authorizing ordinance prior to downtown parking meter installation; directs staff to install signage and pavement markings that are agreed to as part of the dialogue between neighborhoods, the downtown businesses and the Traffic Commission; and directs staff to utilize parking meter, parking ticket and/or commuter pass revenues for downtown neighborhood parking enforcement.

 

Section 10 will retain its originally drafted language with no changes.

 

Councilmember Kelty moved to accept the above amendments, and to strike the following paragraph on page 50 of the Downtown Flagstaff Management Plan:

 

 

These “Parking Benefit Districts” could be established anywhere there is a “parking problem”, not just in Pasadena, and not just in commercial areas.  People in downtown neighborhoods impacted by spillover commercial parking might be inclined toward generosity if they knew the revenues collected could be used for neighborhood improvements.  They could even exempt their own cars if they wanted.

 

Councilmember Haughey seconded the motion, which passed on majority vote with Mayor Donaldson, Vice-Mayor Overton and Councilmembers Cooper, Haughey, Kelty and White in favor, and Councilmember Swanson opposed.

 

Councilmember Cooper moved to read Resolution No. 2008-05 by title only as amended, seconded by Councilmember Haughey.  The motion passed on majority vote with Mayor Donaldson and Councilmembers Cooper, Haughey, Kelty and White in favor, and Vice-Mayor Overton and Councilmember Swanson opposed.

Councilmember Haughey moved to adopt Resolution No. 2008-05, seconded by Councilmember Cooper.  The motion passed on majority vote with Mayor Donaldson and Councilmembers Cooper, Haughey, Kelty and White in favor, and Vice-Mayor Overton and Councilmember Swanson opposed.

 

E.

RECOMMENDED ACTION:

Extend the tentative plat approval for a period of one year, subject to the additional condition that the developer provide additional Butler Avenue right-of-way necessary to facilitate the eventual build-out of Butler Avenue .
