anonymous Vehicles (delivery trucks, cabs/uber, motorists) parking in bike lanes on both sides of street is a consistent issue. Limited parking options for quick drop-off/pick-up and zero enforcement by PD are to blame. 12/30/2017

anonymous Residents of multi-unit building with 'open-air' garage double park, blocking the sidewalk. This is very inconsiderate and dangerous for pedestrians and an ADA compliance issue. 12/30/2017

anonymous On-street parking on 45th Street is very limited. Motorists frequently park in red zones (especially near San Pablo Ave) and block driveways. Parking restrictions are never enforced so vehicles rarely move; I've reported vehicles via the Emeryville app, but no action has been taken. Some residents own multiple vehicles (some non-working) and park them on the street, taking up spaces that are in high demand. As a result, visiting motorists park in ways that block driveways. Reports via Emeryville app about vehicles not adhering to parking limits are not addressed. 12/30/2017

anonymous Work. Usually park M-Th from 5:45am to 4:30pm. Rarely have a problem finding convenient and free parking. Would be nice if individual spaces were marked because usually there is at least one car taking up 2 spots. Separately, there is a sign on the north side of 65th street that says no parking beyond a certain point but the location is several feet before the red curb starts. I’ve known several people who’ve been ticketed when past the sign but still before the red curb. Seems unfair since the sign is not clear. 12/07/2017

anonymous Work. Our company has a large internal parking lot, but it does fill up by late morning. Parking on the surrounding streets is usually easy until 9:30-10:00am, after which I need to go farther up Horton St. If meters are added, please have an all-day option, or a permit program for businesses/employees. 12/06/2017

David Ford I park here at night to go running along the bay. I park here during the day when I visit my office. Typically park for 1-2 hours. Parking is easy to find. The main issue I have is the time limit when I park here for work. If there was a permit system I would get a permit using my office address. 11/17/2017

anonymous I live on 63rd between Doyle & Vallejo and since the construction has stopped (11/14) on one of the parking garages, parking has gotten better. I expect when the transit center is complete parking will go back to normal since the construction workers have displaced all the usual parkers, not to mention the closing off of spaces to accommodate the construction. I can always find parking now. However, when the parking surveyors were here in October, while construction on both lots was being done, parking was quite difficult. Those October surveys are obsolete. I don't shop Bay Street because of the pay parking, even though I live so close. I don't mind workers parking here. We all can barely afford to live in the Bay Area and making all pay for permits and meters is just not right. The conspiracy theorist in me says that all these meters and permits are coming to fruition now in order to get people to use those newly built garages courtesy of the construction mafia. 11/15/2017

anonymous I live in an older house with no off street parking. I generally park evenings and weekends, but when I do try to park during weekday work hours, the immediate neighborhood is parked up. There is usually some parking available farther from Hollis (e.g. between Vallejo and San Pablo). We have been experiencing car break-ins in the neighborhood, and I'd rather be able to park closer to home. I'd like to see residential parking permits, either low cost or with sliding scale for residents who can't afford them. Also temporary permits for visiting family/friends. 11/13/2017

Christopher Schardt One thing that's very nice about Emeryville is that it DOESN'T have paid parking. One of the reasons I like to shop in Emeryville is that I DON'T have to have a handful of quarters or deal with one of those credit-card parking machines. PLEASE keep Emeryville relaxed and chill. Please do not set up paid parking in this sweet little city I call home. (Yes, I'm technically in Oakland but Emeryville is only 133' feet away.) Also, if Emeryville sets up parking meters up to the Oakland border, us borderline Oaklanders will see all our parking spaces vanish. 11/13/2017

anonymous I live here and have deeded parking spaces in my garage. However, my guests, service people, etc are unable to find a spot during the workday hours. Parking is not a problem in the evenings and weekends, but time and time again people who are coming over call and say they cannot find parking on Sherwin, Park, Hubbard, Halleck or Horton. This will only get worse with the proposed development on the Sherwin Williams property, the giving up of spaces for bike share and the giving up the spaces for bump outs. I believe there must be enforced, time limited, fee parking so that this area does not continue to be free parking for those commuting to SF. 11/12/2017

anonymous Our business is located here. We park here between 6am and 4pm. Normally there is no issue with finding parking. Only occasional issue is abandoned/overnight vagrant parking and Food Truck parking, taking up space. 11/09/2017

anonymous Home. We sometimes park on the street instead of the garage, or when we have visitors we instruct them to park on Doyle because our complex (Loop 22) does not have many visitor spots. We will park here for a few hours or occasionally overnight. It’s not that easy to find parking on Doyle during weekdays due to businesses. Weekends are much easier. I hope that these new changes will not add paid parking to this area as I would hate to have to pay for parking where I live! 11/09/2017

anonymous I live here!!!! I park whenever I'm home, for as long as I'm home, and also when I've used other transportation to go somewhere. I'm not young, and have trouble walking any distance. It's not easy when workers down on Hollis use this street as their free parking space, often partly blocking driveways (It works for them, what else matters). While residential permit parking might help residents, I would prefer not to pay for the "privilege". Neighbors that I've talked to feel pretty much the same. Don't even think about meters on this street, it's residential - people live here, and need to park near their homes, not just to shop or commute. I notice that you've used a photo of our block for this site, and hope you're not considering us as a pilot for whatever you're proposing. 11/08/2017

anonymous I work in Emeryville M-F and generally use street parking from 8AM-5PM. Finding parking on the street within a block of my job is typically pretty easy, though there are a number of vehicles that seem to be semi-permanently parked. Thinking of some buses and motorhomes that I see in the neighborhood. Putting meters on the street seems unnecessary if this is truly an effort to create more on-street parking. There isn't an abundance of retail in North Hollis that would demand high-turnover parking. Since there doesn't seem to be an actual demand for more parking, I hope this isn't just a roundabout taxation of the workers as a revenue generator for the city's general fund. 11/08/2017

anonymous I work near here and park on the street when our work parking area fills up. Most days I ride my bike. I can usually find parking within a block from work when needed. Please do not install meters around this area as things seem to be fine as they are. Bike routes to the train pedestrian bridge on the west side(coming from the Powell Street Plaza Shopping Center) are not very clear or friendly to bikes. I have to cut through parking lots or service drives and the intersection of Powell St and Shellmound St is outright dangerous. 11/06/2017

anonymous I park on the street at my home evenings and weekends and mostly walk around eville when I am home. It is always pretty easy to find parking when I need it. When I'm home during a weekday, my street does tend to fill up, but I can usually find a spot no problem within a block. A couple times a year, I see broken glass on the ground where someone has broken into a car, tho I know not to leave anything in the car, so have thankfully have not yet had my car broken into. The current parking situation on my street is fine as it is. I'm glad that there is ample parking all around so that it doesn't impact my street more than it does. My only complaint is that some of the people who park on the street during the weekdays throw their litter out on the curb/sidewalk, but since there's no parking policy I'm aware of that stops people from just being rude litterers, this is more of a vent than an expectation that the city will be able to stop this. 11/06/2017
