Body
BACKGROUND/DISCUSSION
In December 2014, the City received a grant through the City/County Association of Governments of San Mateo County (C/CAG) to study current and future parking needs within the downtown Priority Development Area (PDA), as well as potential impacts of new development spurred by the Downtown Station Area Specific Plan. The consultants conducting the study, CDM Smith (Consultant), reviewed existing parking conditions, and forecasted parking demand in the short-term (three-year period) and long-term (ten-year period). The parking study found that by 2026 an additional 228 parking spaces in the downtown would be needed during the lunch hour, 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m., and during the dinner rush, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

As part of the Fiscal Year 2017-18 Capital Improvement Program (CIP), the City Council approved Parking Garage Number 2 planning as a CIP project. Staff contracted with Kimley Horn to conduct the planning phase of a new downtown parking garage. Part of the planning phase was to validate the parking occupancy results of the 2016 parking study and then assist staff with recommending the best site for a second parking garage in the downtown.

The occupancy study was conducted on one weekday and one Saturday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. The Kimley Horn study found that the peak trends followed the 2016 study and saw a higher level of occupancy than what was found in 2016. Based on the parking occupancy data they determined that the second garage would be best located south of Grand Avenue.
