“Parking box” program in residential hillside neighborhoods

Parking will only be permitted in designated “boxed” areas which are designed to assure emergency vehicles can access all streets in San Rafael. 

Why? Our Municipal Code currently prohibits parking on narrow street unless six (6) feet from center is maintained unobstructed. This standard is confusing, hard to enforce, and does not guarantee fire engines and other large vehicles can safely access all areas of San Rafael. The “parking box” concept is easy to observe and understand for both residents and visitors.
