Alhambra launches outreach program to inform residents about Main Street traffic and parking changes

City staff will distribute information in downtown Alhambra this weekend explaining traffic changes during the construction of a multilevel parking structure on First and Main streets. Members of the Alhambra Parks and Recreation Department will be in the area every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 5 to 10 p.m. until staff decides the outreach is no longer necessary, said Assistant to the City Manager Chris Paulson.

“We're going for the overkill," Paulson said. "We want to give as much information as possible."

Demand for parking will increase in the downtown area during construction of the Mosaic Parking Structure — which is scheduled to be completed by late November — mainly due to the closure of the parking lot at First and Main, Paulson said Monday during the Alhambra City Council meeting. To accommodate the increased demand, City Council voted during the meeting to extend parking enforcement times in downtown Alhambra to 10 p.m. seven days a week. Extending the hours of parking enforcement will result in faster turnover of cars, according to Paulson.

City Council also reverted South First to a two-way street and changed North First to a one-way street in December. The changes will help alleviate traffic near the intersection, according to city staff.

The business community in downtown Alhambra needs the parking structure, which will provide 292 spaces for Main Street employees and patrons, Paulson said Jan. 21 during an informational meeting hosted by the city. Once the structure is finished, he said, residents will have more room to park on the street.

“Aside from the increasing number of patrons, there has been less street parking for residents to use," Paulson said. "Once the structure is built, more spots will open up."

  1. Boy, our local “leaders” REALLY want to boost patronage of Main Street, don’t they?

    1. More likely, they want to increase city income from Main Street.

  2. Hope they are able to alert as many people as possible. The parking tickets are $53 for exceeding the parking times in the structure and nearby streets.

    1. How long are the parking times?

  3. Who wants to place bets that the council will rescind the extension of “parking enforcement times in downtown Alhambra to 10 p.m. seven days a week” after the new parking structure is completed?
