Letter: Allow Parking District Funds to be Spent on Green Transportation Amenities

Circulate submitted a letter urging the City to allow parking district funds to be spent on green transportation amenities. Circulate San Diego and the Downtown San Diego Partnership sent a letter and memorandum on April 2, 2021, showing new law that allows parking revenues to be spent on a broader variety of activities. The California Supreme Court reaffirmed that interpretation of law in the recent decision, Zolly v. City of Oakland. San Diego’s rules can and should be expanded to allow for these funds to contribute to transportation amenities that do not impact parking demands, including for safer streets, crosswalks, bus shelters, and clean-and safe programs.
