<br />Traffic Operations Committee Meeting Minutes – June 22, 2017 <br />I:\ENPS - Common\EN\Traffic\T.O.C\Agendas & Minutes\2017\Minutes 6-22-17.doc <br />1 <br />CITY OF CORONADO <br /> <br />TRAFFIC OPERATIONS COMMITTEE <br /> <br />MEETING MINUTES <br /> <br />June 22, 2017 <br /> <br />A meeting of the Traffic Operations Committee (TOC) was held on Thursday, June 22, 2017, at <br />2 p.m. in the Council Chambers. Committee members Mike Blood, Rachel Hurst (arrived at <br />2:02 p.m.), and Cliff Maurer were present. Jim Newton represented the absent Ed Walton and <br />Laszlo Waczek represented the absent Jon Froomin. Associate Engineer Katie Odiorne was also <br />present. <br /> <br />1. Minutes of the May 25, Meeting – Mr. Blood moved to approve the minutes; Mr. Newton <br />seconded the motion and it passed 4-0, with Ms. Hurst absent. <br /> <br />2. Oral Communications – Philip Purdy said he rides a motorcycle and has a concern with <br />Alameda Boulevard near NASNI. As he exits in the afternoon he turns right on Alameda from <br />First and goes to Fourth. At every intersecting street there are “No Left Turn 2-6 PM” signs. <br />People make a U-turn and then a right turn to avoid the illegality of making an illegal left turn. <br />When they do this they can’t see motorcyclists and he fears for his safety. He proposed <br />installing “No U-Turn” signs down the length of Alameda in front of NASNI. Some additional <br />enforcement could help as well. <br /> <br />3. Recommendation regarding a Request to Install a Blue Curb Zone on Coronado Cays <br />Boulevard in front of the Residence at 13 Montego Court – A request was received to have a <br />blue curb painted on Coronado Cays Boulevard at the condominium complex located in the <br />northern area of the Coronado Cays. This complex is adjacent to the Coronado Loews Resort. <br />To prevent Loews patrons from parking overnight in the Cays, parking restrictions are in place <br />for Coronado Cays Boulevard north of Jamaica Village Road from 2-5 a.m. The applicant meets <br />all the criteria of the residential blue curb warrant, including obtaining a petition in favor of the <br />blue curb signed by a majority of the complex residents. The applicant has also received support <br />from the homeowners’ association board representative for Montego Village. <br /> The warrant includes a requirement that the property does not have space that could be <br />reasonably converted to disabled parking. The applicant has a detached garage on site which is <br />located 350' away from the property. The path of travel also includes a significant slope. <br />Considering this slope and the distance from the garage to the unit, staff does not recommend <br />that the garage be converted to disabled parking. <br /> Based on the findings, staff recommends installation of one 20' blue curb zone adjacent to the <br />red curb on Coronado Cays Boulevard and that Resolution 7240 be amended to exclude blue <br />curb zones from the 2-5 a.m. parking restriction. <br /> The original request was for one or two blue curb zones for the applicant and his wife. It was <br />also mentioned that there are several other disabled residents in the area. Historically, the City <br />has authorized one blue curb zone per property. If additional blue curb zones are requested by <br />Montego Village residents, they would be evaluated at the time of the request.
