At the August 17 city council meeting, agenda item #5A features a study session regarding TOD access strategies, including the possibility of the city creating an on-street parking management program.
We strongly support the city creating a parking management program, as it will provide a station access option for BART commuters who must drive, while preserving parking options for local residents.
