SAN DIEGO -- The City’s Land Use and Housing Committee recommended Oct. 18 the approval of reverse angled parking on 25th Street in Golden Hill, a change that would increase parking in the neighborhood by altering existing traffic patterns. The proposal will now be heard by the full City Council at a yet-undetermined future meeting.
Councilmember Todd Gloria, who serves on the committee, applauded the decision for both the increase in parking and attention to safety concerns.
“Reverse angled parking offers safe access for all users, including bicyclist, pedestrians and motorists,” he said in a newsletter, “and, along with other project design features, establishes the corridor as a complete street.”
The recommendation comes as part of the 25th Street Renaissance Street Enhancement project, a partnership between the City and the Greater Golden Hill Community Development Corporation. The project’s goal is to enhance the streets and sidewalks along 25th Street between F Street and Russ Boulevard.
The reverse angled parking – the first such plan in San Diego – will occur on 25th Street between Broad and B Street, if approved by the council.
