In response to concerns raised by residents, the City is reviewing the existing on‐street parking within the bike lane on the eastern side of Laurel Street between Oak Grove Avenue and Glenwood Avenue with the intention of ensuring that the street is safe for all users. Laurel Street provides a key north‐south bicycle connection and is a designated Safe Route to Encinal School. Vehicles parking along this section block the northbound bicycle lane on Laurel Street, forcing bicyclists into the vehicle travel lane.
Currently, parking is prohibited on the eastern side of Laurel Street along the Nativity School frontage between 7:00 – 9:00 a.m. The potential prohibition under consideration would extend the no parking restriction to all day. The existing bus stop would be maintained.
Should you have any questions, concerns or objections to this installation, the City will hold a neighborhood meeting. If you cannot attend, please feel free to contact Jesse T. Quirion at (650) 330‐6744 or firstname.lastname@example.org with comments or questions.
