City Council to Meet: Parking Permits, Pindera Development

Millbrae City Council meets Tuesday evening at 621 Magnolia Avenue.

Councilmembers will address several items at the Council Chambers beginning at 7 p.m.

They will vote on whether to approve a final map for the Pindera mixed use development at 120 South El Camino Real. The plan would allow Pinewave Development to construct 54 apartment units, 11,000 square feet of commercial space and 114 parking spaces. 

Currently, a Wendy's drive-through and restaurant and a parking lot are on the site.

City Council will also vote on whether to designate part of the parking lot at the Capuchino Triangle between El Camino Real, Park Pl. and Park Ave. for business parking. 

This recommendation comes after several business owners on Park Ave. petitioned the city in Jan. 2012 to create longer-term parking spaces in the area to for business employees. Previously, in Sept. 2011, nearby residents had petitioned to make the area a residential parking permit zone.

Tuesday's recommendation is meant to reconcile the two conflicting parking requests. The resolution would create 6 business parking spaces in the lot, labeled for vehicles with Commercial, or "C", permits. Those spaces would be available for 2 hours to customers, or all day to C-permit holders.

C-permits cost $100 per year for business owners and employees.

Also at the meeting, City Council will receive an update on the temporary fire station that is meant to merge services betwee Central County Fire—which serves Burlingame and Hillsborough—and Millbrae's Fire Department services. 

A staff report projects a $1.4 million budget gap once Millbrae's Fire Assessment tax, originally passed in 2004, ends in 2014. An estimated $450,000 would be saved with the shared fire station.
