Street meters plan not a guarantee

A parking policy study suggesting that The City should install more on-street meters and that neighborhood communities should have a greater say in where revenue goes was approved on Tuesday, but the OK doesn’t mean the recommendations will be put in place.

The Board of Supervisors, acting in the role of the directors of the San Francisco County Transportation Authority, approved the study, which was conducted by SFCTA staff as a policy guide to encourage more discussion about better parking practices in The City.

Of San Francisco’s 600,000 parking spots, only 24,000 are monitored by meters, the study found. More meters would be a crucial revenue source for Muni, and would play a key role in managing congestion as The City’s population grows, according to the report.

However, Jose Luis Moscovich, executive director of the SFCTA, assured board members that approving the study would not directly lead to more parking meters popping up around The City.
