Library construction leads to parking prohibition on Fig, Alvarado

The Fallbrook Community Planning Group (FCPG) unanimously approved a motion on October 19 to adopt a parking prohibition for the new Fallbrook Library for sight distance from the parking lot on a portion of Fig and Alvarado streets.

Department of General Services representatives David Timber and Dahvia Lynch presented the request to restrict the parking along a portion of Fig and Alvarado, near the vicinities of where the entrances to the new Fallbrook Library will be.

According to the FCPG board meeting notes, the restriction would be approximately 100 feet on either side of the driveways.

“The discretionary actions associated with the development of the Fallbrook Library require county departments review and approval, thus triggering the need for compliance with all relevant county policies for this project,” said Lynch. “For new discretionary permits, corner sight distance is required.”

Several community members voiced concerns of this prohibition triggering other parking prohibitions be enforced, but Lynch was quick to address any concerns.

“The county does not have any plans to establish or enforce parking prohibitions for existing developed properties where there is not a discretionary action under county review and the driveways continue to operate well,” she stated.

According to Lynch, the prohibition will take over 12 spaces in the area during construction but will replaced in a new area to be paved after the construction of the new library in a shared parking lot owned by the Fallbrook Parking Trust.

“This will provide the necessary corner sight distance as recommended in the library’s traffic study,” explained Lynch.
