Solana Beach City Council may enforce time limits for parking lot near Fletcher Cove

The Solana Beach City Council is moving forward with its plan to enforce time limits at a parking lot off S. Sierra Avenue, across the street from Fletcher Cove.

The council made that decision during its Feb. 9 meeting after hearing a staff report that concluded this parking lot, commonly known as the “distillery lot,” is mostly being used by the employees from nearby businesses — however, the city acquired that lot in 2006 with the intention of using it for beachgoers and patrons of those businesses. The misuse of that lot has prompted complaints from neighbors, and business owners who say it’s driving away clientele.

Because of that, council is proposing that during the work-week there be a two-hour limit on eight of the parking spaces, and a four-hour limit on the remaining 74 spaces. There would be no time limits on holidays or weekends.

That proposal will still have to go before the Coastal Commission for approval. If Solana Beach gets the green light, these parking time limits will be tested for one year, with a review by the council at the six-month mark.

The council also pointed out that there is plenty of public parking in the adjacent streets and at other nearby lots, and suggested that some of these business owners give their employees incentives for carpooling or taking mass transit.
