Excelsior District Parking Summits

So you ask- why are these strange people inserting fliers under my wiper blades, who are they and don't they realize that parking problems in the Excelsior are as inevitable as taxes and potholes on our streets? Perhaps. But here's the scoop for folks that are interested in at least attempting to begin addressing what surveys consistently show many of us consider a major issue in our neighborhood.

This is a project sponsored by Supervisor John Avalos and the Excelsior District Improvement Association.  We hope to address questions you may have about parking/parking laws, explore some possible solutions to our parking issues and provide a forum where your parking concerns can be aired.

More information on parking rules & regulations, and frequently asked questions.

The initial parking summit was held at the Mission Child Care Consortium at 4750 Mission Street on Tuesday, June 29, 2010, with a follow-up workshop at the same location on Saturday, July 10, 2010. The second summit focused on possible actions and solutions to the district's parking problems. A final community meeting was held at the Excelsior Playground Clubhouse on February 25, 2012.

We have archives of photos taken at Summits 2 and 3, but, unfortunately, none taken at Summit 1.
