Safe Communities
Reason for Recommended Action/Background
Approval of the attached resolution will establish a no parking zone using ‘No Parking Anytime’ signs along the east and west sides of East Street (County Road 100) between the City of Woodland and County Road (CR) 25A. The no parking zone will be approximately 3,950 feet on both sides of the road between the City of Woodland limit to CR 25A. The parking restrictions will provide an unobstructed path for two-way traffic, promote clear lines of sight at driveways, and discourage trespass of motorists onto private railroad right-of-way.
 
BACKGROUND
On July 30, 2021, Public Works Division staff received a complaint regarding safety concerns about a recreational vehicle (RV) parked on the west side shoulder of East Street, between the City of Woodland limit and CR 25A. County staff performed a review of this section of East Street, and though the RV was not located, staff observed other vehicles parked on the east side shoulder of East Street.
 
Several factors exist on East Street between the City of Woodland limit and CR 25A that make a no parking zone appropriate and an enhancement to safety:
  • Along East Street there are insufficient shoulders on both sides for vehicles to park off of the roadway, making the road too narrow for on-street parking and two-way traffic.
  • Parked vehicles along both sides of this section of road are also a potential public safety concern as persons entering and exiting the vehicles that are parked on the shoulders, likely need to enter into the travel lanes due to the insufficient shoulder space.
  • On the west side of East Street parked vehicles, and persons entering and exiting these vehicles may inadvertently enter the private California Northern Railroad right-of-way that is immediately adjacent to the roadway on this section of the road and contains an active railway.
  • Vehicles parked on the east side of East Street may obstruct the visibility of oncoming traffic for vehicles merging onto the roadway from the private driveways that are located along this section of the road.
Currently, the City of Woodland has a no parking zone established on the section of East Street between Sports Park Drive/County Road 24A and the city limit to the south, in the area of the Woodland Community & Senior Center. The parking restrictions being proposed in the attached resolution would in effect continue the no parking zone to the south to CR 25A, and create a uniform no parking zone along East Street.
