Sections of Ninth Street and Hellman Avenue to become limited parking zones

Alhambra City Council voted Monday to create Preferred Parking Districts, or limited parking zones, on Ninth Street between Hellman Avenue and Ramona Road and Hellman Avenue between Atlantic Boulevard and Eighth Street. Starting Feb. 12, only service workers and maintenance contractors will be able to park on these sections of Ninth and Hellman and will be limited to one hour parking.

Residents of Ninth and Hellman will still be able to park on the street and can obtain free street parking permits, according to the Alhambra City Clerk's office.

Alhambra residents from Ninth Street, Ramona Road, and Hellman Avenue brought the issue of limited residential parking to City Council in October 2013, complaining that patrons of the nearby Atlantic Times Square park in their neighborhoods instead of using the underground structure beneath the shopping center. Alhambra Public Works Department will review the impact of Preferred Parking in May or June to determine if it is resolving the issue.

City Council also awarded Monday contracts related to the construction of a multilevel parking structure on First and Main streets. Council voted to contract with Geo-Advantec Inc. for soils, deputy inspection, and materials testing and DePinto Morales Communications Inc. for public outreach.

Weren't able to attend the meeting? You can watch it here. City Council usually meets every second and fourth Monday of the month on the second floor of the City Hall: 111 S. First St., Alhambra, Calif., 91801. The next meeting will be on January 27 at 5:30 p.m.

  1. Interesting that that massive commercial building on Hellman & Atlantic (which area residents fondly refer to as the square “Death Star”) is in Monterey Park proper, and the neighborhood targeted for “free parking” is in Alhambra.

    Hmm…let’s see…former Alhambra Mayor/Councilman turned Monterey Park City Manager. Son of former Alhambra Mayor/Councilman/local real estate agent-turned-consultant is now Assistant to Alhambra City Manager. Then we have wife of long-time Alhambra Mayor/Councilman-turned-developer/consultant to City of Alhambra who is currently an Alhambra City Councilwoman.

    Follow the money.

  2. What effect (if any) does this have on the overnight street parking rules?

    1. The preferred parking designation does not exempt residents from street sweeping and overnight parking requirements. Thank you for your question!
