Corralitas Drive: Temporary No Parking Zone Reduced

Photo: Corralitas Neighbor, April 12, 2016.  Tuesday, the City Department of Transportation (DOT) mistakenly placed temporary No Parking signs on both sides of Corralitas Drive between Rosebud and the top of the hill - covering 80% of the entire hillside street with only one means of access.

Today, we learned the signs were for the DWP to put in a water main connection to a duplex under construction at the top of the Corralitas Public Staircase.  After I spoke by phone to the DWP site supervisor this morning, he went to the street and removed all the unnecessary signs.  The remaining signs are around construction site at either end of the public staircase.  DWP needs the parking for their vehicles and to leave a lane open for cars going up and down the hill. 

Work should be complete next week.  The Corralitas Public Staircase will be closed to the public on the days they are working there.  Work should start later this week and take about 2 days (not a month as the no parking permit was issued to the DWP).

Tuesday, neighbors were fuming as there was no information, nor warning prior to the signs showing up.  Corralitas neighbors worked together quickly sharing information so we could follow up.  A number of neighbors spoke to the DWP site supervisor in the street today.    He encouraged us to talk to them on site if there are questions or problems.

Good work neighbors!
