In-Lieu Parking Fee program requires a year-round shuttle system

While we are considering a new Del Mar City Hall with a new parking structure for public parking, I thought it would be worthwhile to point out the In-Lieu Parking Fee program does not suggest just a huge parking structure, but does require also a fully operational, year-round shuttle system throughout the commercial zone to Powerhouse/Seagrove Park before more than 50 In-Lieu Fees can be sold.

See DMMC 30.80.170 G. “In-Lieu Parking Fees cannot be collected for more than 50 total parking spaces before both the public parking facility and shuttle system are fully operational. Once the In-Lieu Parking Fee Program becomes fully operational, the City shall utilize its best efforts to continue the Program.”

It seems it isn’t required to have a 200-space parking structure at one location.  In fact, it is suggested only that public parking spaces be provided throughout the C-zone, down 15th to Powerhouse/Seagrove Parks.  With a year-round shuttle system, a large underground parking structure could be located under either of the parks at the beach!  Wouldn’t that benefit the parking problems at both the beach and the commercial zone?  The Coastal Commission would certainly like that!

The sooner we get additional public parking and shuttle, the sooner we can sell more of the in-expensive In-Lieu Parking Fees to re-develop the private properties downtown!
