Oversized vehicle parking a problem in Carmel Valley, residents say

Residents in Regents Square off Quarter Mile Drive in Carmel Valley are complaining about the “eyesore” of oversized and commercial vehicles continually parked along their street.

During public comment at the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board meeting on Jan. 26, resident Kim Wilson said many of the vehicles are repeat offenders and their owners know the rules and how to get around them.

Per San Diego Municipal Code, no vehicle can be parked continuously at one location on any public roadway for more than 72 hours. Wilson said the owners will just move the boats and vehicles around on the same street.

Planning board chair Frisco White said it was not the first time they’ve heard of this issue.

“It’s been on our plate for many, many years,” White said.

Mel Millstein, a representative for District 1 Councilmember Sherri Lightner’s office, said that an oversized vehicle ordinance has been discussed at the city council level in the past. Board member Debbie Lokanc also wondered about the possibility of doing limited parking on that street, a method that has been successful in neighborhoods around San Diego State University.

For now, people can report vehicles parked longer than 72 hours by calling (858) 495-7800.
