Two months after the city added parking restrictions near La Cañada Elementary School, on Monday Joseph Mitchell convinced the City Council to revisit the issue.
Mitchell, a Fairview Drive resident, is seeking stronger restrictions and told the council that the intersection of Fairview and Angeles Crest Highway is too dangerous to ignore.
“I must say that you and the Planning Commission all have made mistakes already regarding this matter,” Mitchell said. “This is a matter of public safety, of many cars coming in at all hours … there should be no parking day or night in that area.”
Mitchell first approached the city with his concerns in April.
In May, the Public Works Commission determined that parking should be prohibited for a 100-foot stretch of the south side of Fairview, from the corner with Angeles Crest toward the elementary school campus.
In July, the council scaled back that recommendation, and instead prohibited parking in the area only during mornings and afternoons on school days. Mayor Steve del Guercio and Councilman Donald Voss were not in attendance at the July meeting.
