Study parking 


December 14, the Downtown Berkeley Association submitted 622 petition signatures to the Mayor and City Councilmembers opposing General Plan Policy T-35 and urging a balanced approach to parking in the downtown. Within a two week period, downtown businesses collected these signatures from their customers. Around 90 percent of the signatures are Berkeley residents. 

The petition calls for: encouraging the use of public transit; preserving the existing parking supply; studying the need for new parking in the downtown; removing General Plan policy T-35 that prohibits the city from spending funds to increase the number of parking spaces in the Downtown.
