Based on community feedback, the City Council recently revised to increase multi-family parking requirements within the Transit Corridors Plan (TCP) area. The proposed project exceeds the new TCP parking standards by providing an additional 72 parking stalls above the policy requirement.
The following is a summary of proposed parking in the Mills Park Center Development Project and how it will exceed the new revised TCP standards:
- Building A Residential: 254 Total Stalls Required (236 Resident and 18 Guest Stalls) - 265 Provided (excess of 11 stalls). Residential parking spaces would be accessed from White Way
- Building A Commercial: 168 Total Stalls Required (4 stalls: 1,000 SF) - 170 Provided (excess of 2 stalls). Commercial parking spaces would be accessed from El Camino Real
- Building B Residential: 335 Total Stalls Required (311 Resident and 24 Guest Stalls) - 376 Provided (excess of 41 stalls). Residential parking would be accessed from El Camino Real with a second residential garage entrance on Kains Avenue
- Building B Commercial: 40 spaces required (10 stalls: 1,000 SF) - 68 Provided (excess of 18 stalls). Retail parking would be accessed from El Camino Real
The City required the Project to have a residential and commercial parking management plan:
- Prohibit the property owners from charging a separate fee for parking stalls
- All residential and commercial parking spaces shall be designated and signed for the exclusive use of each use with private enforcement by management
- Wayfinding and parking garage signage required to ensure stalls are easily found from public streets
- Other measures as required by City to minimize potential for spillover parking on adjacent residential streets
The proposed Project would add public parking on Linden Avenue for City library or municipal center parking.
