The last edition of the SRCC Newsletter was published in April of 2020. Before then, the newsletter came out three times a year.

Presenter: Betty Weed, Chair Communications Committee ( 10 min)
7:55 2105 Parker Lane: An Update – The Foundation Communities project was unanimously approved by the City Council on May 6, 2021. The vote was for MF3 instead of MF4, with the conditional overlay to add a setback from the neighboring condos.
Presenter: Fred DeWorken, Area 7 Representative (5 min)
8. 8:00 South Congress Parking Strategy – Public Draft
The Public Draft can be read here. The Draft describes creation of a PTMD (Parking Transportation Management District). Defining the boundaries for the paid parking map is the current task and will be driven by neighborhood input. There are recommendations for improving and enforcing RPPs (Residential Parking Permits). A benefit of moving to a PTMD is that it will create a revenue stream dedicated to mobility improvement for the neighborhood. In addition to sidewalks, the revenue from the meters could fund a circulator like the Dillo.
Presenters: Mark Thompson, Chair Mobility Committee and Joseph Al-Hajeri, CoA Transportation Dept. (10 min + 10 min Q&A)
