Progress Report:
The Balboa Village Advisory Committee (BVAC) finalized its review of the parking programs to implement the Balboa Village Master Plan. The recommended parking programs will include: 1) a residential permit parking program (RB3); 2) elimination of parking standards for new development and intensification of uses; 3) an employee parking permit program; and 4) modified parking rates. The action documents required to codify the programs are under development and are anticipated to be considered by the Planning Commission and City Council in September and October 2014.

BVAC’s 2014 work program continues to implement the recommendations of the Balboa Village Master Plan. The focus is on the character and aesthetics of the Village. Specific efforts underway include: 1) update of the Balboa Village Design Guidelines, 2) refresh the streetscape, 3) development of a coordinated way finding program, and 4) creation of a façade improvement program. The BVACs review of these projects is expected to be complete by Fall 2014.
