(HILLCREST) San Diego City Councilmember Todd Gloria will join Hillcrest community members and City staff this morning at 10:30 for a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the completed parking project on Normal Street.
Entitled the "median improvement project", the addition of the 14 parking spaces will help address the community’s parking deficit and visually enhance this frequently-traveled area. Local parking meter revenue was paired with City resources to make the project possible.
According to the Council District 3 office, the shortage of parking has long plagued Hillcrest, and the improvements increase the availability of parking spots near the popular University Ave. business corridor. The improvements were spearheaded by community members and were partially funded with local parking meter revenue by the Uptown Partnership. Gloria feels the improvements are a smart investment in infrastructure and community character.
