will the transcript for th Q&A or chat be public knowledge and when
Pat S
26:20
Actually I have video of the over counting.
Rene Smith
55:06
what is left when you use half a parking space? park half a car? I don't understand the concept.
Pat S
56:33
Deep into North Park residential there are frequently scooters laying around in the curbs and sidewalks for days and kids flying down the sidewalks. Good luck in making it better.
Nevo Magnezi
59:31
thank you for the response
Pat S
01:14:40
there was no way to unmuted myself. try again plz.
Nevo Magnezi
01:17:27
uptown planners wrote a letter in supporr for protected bike lanes on park blvd in balboa park: https://uptownplannerssd.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/2021_11_2_Minutes_ATTACHMENTS_UptownPlanners.pdf
Pat S
01:19:50
Well said Paul.
Carmen Cooley
01:19:55
why isn't the City working with communities and planning groups
Nevo Magnezi
01:21:06
Carmen: They are! Community plans and bike master plans support bike lanes on Park Blvd
Carmen Cooley
01:21:26
Where are the reports for Park Blvd North of University- zero refuses to be transparent- no CEQA, no data provided and the plans are not feasible due to flooding and property damage. Zero reports for ADA safety and we live in a 30% Senior community
Rene Smith
01:21:44
Navo, so then it should remain Class II?
Nevo Magnezi
01:21:56
CEQA is not required for bike lane implementation in California
Paul Jamason
01:22:29
I'm still waiting for the re-routed bike lane that Paul Krueger promised last time he killed a planned bike route. Please move forward, we know there is no “alternative” once the parking lobby kills these projects.
Paul Jamason
01:23:32
Bicyclists deserve safe access to businesses on Park Blvd. What are these "other things”?
Pat S
01:23:43
Business are super important to consider in the most narrow park of Park. We already know what no parking has done to 30th. street, University is now feeling the same. Do not do it to Park
Paul Jamason
01:24:12
"No parking” on 30th? What about the 400-space empty parking garage?
Rene Smith
01:24:19
I'm not part of the parking lobby as you call them. I've worked for years on Balboa Park parking and circulation... and blithe comments like "charge for parking" shows little regard for the complexity in the park.
Paul Jamason
01:24:56
Why can parks and zoos across the country charge for parking, but Balboa Park/Zoo can’t?
Carmen Cooley
01:25:10
I have seen many bike riders in the bus lane currently and they see to co exist perfectly fine. Also Georgia, Florida and Cleveland already have bike ways that can safely promote cycling
Paul Jamason
01:25:53
My favorite part was charging for parking only on city streets, but that the funding could only go to Balboa Park - priceless! What a disastrous "comprehensive" report: https://www.sandiego.gov/sites/default/files/bpcagenda210304-item502.pdf
Rene Smith
01:26:01
Paul, because this is San Diego. You lead that effort to charge for parking. It's been brought up for years and regularly, it's open warfare and the politicos back down.
Rene Smith
01:26:50
Thanks for you kind words of support Paul on the hundreds of volunteer hours spent trying to thread that needle.
Paul Jamason
01:26:56
Well it's time for bold leadership. I'm tired of politicos backing down to the parking lobby.
Paul Jamason
01:27:46
Renee, perhaps if you had mentioned bikes *once* in your report... it seems to live in a 1970s cars-only world where climate change doesn't exist.
Carmen Cooley
01:28:29
@ Nicole I have requested this exact thing and zero acknowledgement from the City to walk ride the Blvd. Also over 1,500 petition signatures with zero effort for people wanting transparency and communication. I love biking but know the street is unsafe as the plans you have designed today
Paul Jamason
01:28:30
21 out of 27 recommendations to *increase* parking, as city and state explicitly state VMT reductions.
Rene Smith
01:29:10
BTW, currently there is over $300 million dollars in infrastructure backlog … charge for parking but keep the money in the park … it's the only hope for paid parking. So, Paul, we purposely had to limit the discussion to cars. That's why the framework for the future was slated to do the heavy lifting … stop poking those who are trying their best to thread that needle. it's easy to take pot shots … maybe become part of the solution?
Carmen Cooley
01:29:46
My friends at the Auto Museum and Air and Space had their parking removed and their attendance dropped drasticlly
Rene Smith
01:29:47
Inspiration parking is loaded with Navy hospital users on Mon - Fri …
Paul Jamason
01:29:51
I don't understand why the discussion had to be limited to cars?
Rene Smith
01:30:27
Did you see the complexity of what needed to be analyzed with nearly 3 dozen reports?
Rene Smith
01:30:52
Paul, we should talk some time.
Paul Jamason
01:31:12
Feel free to email me Rene, I'm at pjamason@gmail.com
Rene Smith
01:32:03
thanks, will do. fairnessforbalboapark@gmail.com
Carmen Cooley
01:32:11
When will the gap be fixed of re-striping the intersection of Park and El Cajon 3 accidents last week 1 more this week. Near misses of cars vs MTS since there are zero signs and stripes
Paul Jamason
01:32:56
Thanks Rene. I'm frustrated that Comiskey rejected *every* option the city presented for Park Blvd (on KPBS report), citing the need for a "comprehensive plan”, when the Park’s comprehensive plan is cars only.
Pat S
01:33:14
Attendance is what keeps the park open and feeding animals and employing people. A money maker for the city but I do think paid parking in the lots is a good idea.
Paul Jamason
01:33:19
Good question Carmen
Carmen Cooley
01:33:21
Kids walk in the intersections of Park with zero stop signs and crosswalks North of Meade. Saw a cyclist run a sign and almost hit a kid
Rene Smith
01:33:27
I can't speak for Peter C.
Paul Jamason
01:34:18
Thanks Rene, just wanted to explain the reason for my flippant remarks regarding the report.
Rene Smith
01:34:27
one good idea is that the plan should have more and better crosswalk on Park blvd
Paul Jamason
01:34:39
Yes to more crosswalks!
Rene Smith
01:34:49
Paul, apology accepted.
Rene Smith
01:35:09
Include schematics for all of Park Blvd, Adams to the bay
Rene Smith
01:35:38
Mobility Board … thank you … good work
Barbara J Mitana (302)265.6116
01:36:33
a link for the parking subcommittee meeting?
Rene Smith
01:36:37
To be clear that report was generated under Friends of BP, not BP Cultural Partnership
Rene Smith
01:37:11
Bayshore … yay … Vicki Estrada will be happy
Paul Jamason
01:37:23
Yes, but Peter C's name was on it, so that seemed like the closest thing to a comprehensive plan the Park has presented.
Rene Smith
01:38:17
He was just one volunteer contributor among many. There were three of us who authored the report. Jack Carpenter, Roger Showley and myself.
Nicole Burges
01:39:24
I don’t have a link yet, sorry.
Rene Smith
01:40:57
Andy … what's your email address for the Regional workshop info?
Nicole Burges
01:41:04
We have not met in a few months, will send link to all when I have it.
Barbara J Mitana (302)265.6116

thank you
