We weren’t able to make it to Manhattan Beach Community Group’s March meeting this week because of a scheduling conflict, but the group posted a roundup of the meeting on its website. The update notes that the group voted to oppose a proposal to reduce alternate side parking hours in the community that would have made parking more available.
The MBCG overwhelmingly rejected the proposal to change the hours and days of alternate side parking in Manhattan Beach. A motion had been made at a recent Community Board 15 Meeting to cut the days and hours. Nearly everyone felt this was not the solution to help our neighbors who live near the College.
The proposal came about during Community Board 15’s January meeting, when Manhattan Beach Neighborhood Association President Dr. Alan Ditchek – a member of Community Board 15’s executive board – requested a motion to reduce the hours. However, Ditchek later rescinded the motion, according to Community Board 15 Chairperson Theresa Scavo, and both groups are in agreement that the increased parking availability is not worth trading off clean streets.
