Construction begins on Main Street, overnight parking confusion

Alhambra staff announced during Monday night's City Council meeting that construction has begun on two mixed-use projects on Main and Third streets, Casita de Zen and Alhambra Pacific Plaza. Construction on Casita de Zen will be completed in 2014. The completion date for Alhambra Pacific Plaza, the former site of Super A Foods, has not been announced.

David Dintra, a recent transplant to Alhambra, spoke in front of council members after receiving a ticket for parking his U-Haul truck on the street overnight, even with a parking permit. The city prohibits oversized vehicles from overnight parking, but Dintra complained that the rule was not posted in the police station when he purchased his parking permit.

Mayor Steven Placido explained that the city code goes back to an older issue of business owners parking their trucks on the street. “People were bringing moving trucks in and running businesses out of their homes, moving furniture and storing furniture, and it was becoming a problem," Placido said during the meeting. "Truckers were parking on the street overnight, thinking they can get a day-use permit or an overnight permit."

Placido reassured Dintra that city staff will work to find a solution to the lack of information. "I'm sure there is a way to straighten some of these things out and work out the finer details," he said.
