The City of Folsom is set to host a public workshop to discuss concerns and ideas about parking in the Folsom Historic District.

This forum will take place at the Tuesday, Oct. 23, City Council meeting, and is open to the public including residents, businesses, visitors and property owners throughout Folsom and in the Historic District.

It’s no secret there has been a long-time concern and issue regarding parking throughout the Historic District, and now it is time for the public to share their concerns and ideas to help with possible solutions.

City staff are encouraging input from the community about the possible implementation of timed parking, limited parking and/or other parking restrictions on residential streets in Folsom’s Historic District.

Staff will seek direction from the City Council at the conclusion of the workshop. No formal action will be taken by the Council on this matter at this meeting.

City staff will present an overview of current parking conditions in the Historic District (including available public parking facilities and usage); concerns from residents and businesses; information on timed parking, limited parking and other parking restrictions on residential streets; and additional measures that could be considered or implemented in the future.

For questions, comments or suggestions, contact City of Folsom Engineering Manager Mark Rackovan at 916-461-6711 or mrackovan@folsom.ca.us.
