Alameda Segment of the Santa Cruz/Alameda Corridor

NEW: Parking Removal Letter

Recently, County Public Works sent a letter proposing the removal of many parking spaces along Alameda. A FAQ was created (see the Alameda FAQs) and a specific information page is planned soon. This action seems out of sync with the recent Jan 30th meeting at Las Lomitas where the County Alameda presentation stated no parking spaces would be lost and that there would be minimal loss of parking in the corridor as a whole. Learn more about this loss of parking, discussion on pro-vs-con and send your comments via the County Survey.
