The City maintains a strong commitment to the production of affordable housing on City-owned land. With the State mandate to plan for the community’s housing needs over the next 8 years and Council's focus on Addressing Homelessness as a community priority. Public Parking Structure #3 presents a perfect opportunity to address this priority, as it has reached its life expectancy and is need of major repairs and is not viable as a long-term parking structure. Rather than rebuilding a new parking structure, the City will look to the future by continuing to increase sustainable transportation models to the Coast and supporting the development of affordable housing in our City for those affected by California’s housing crisis. When Parking Structure #6 was rebuilt, the number of parking spaces in Parking Structure #3 was more than replaced to allow for its demolition.
