Reche Road parking prohibitions increased

The parking prohibitions on Reche Road near Potter Junior High School and Live Oak Elementary School will soon be modified.

A 5-0 San Diego County Board of Supervisors vote Aug. 6 approved the first reading and introduction of the ordinance to replace the parking bans on the north side of Reche Road from 250 feet west of Los Conejos to 650 feet west of Los Conejos, on the north side of Reche Road from 760 feet west of Green Canyon Road to 1,330 feet west of Green Canyon Road, on the south side of Reche Road from Los Conejos to Via Del Oro, and on the south side of Reche Road from 1,370 feet west of Green Canyon Road to 2,670 feet west of Green Canyon Road with prohibitions on the north side of Reche Road from Via de Maranatha to 650 feet west of Los Conejos and on the south side of Reche Road from Via Del Oro to 1,150 feet west of Los Conejos. The second reading and adoption is scheduled for Sept. 17; passage would make the ordinance amendments effective Oct. 17.

The additional red curb is expected to maximize visibility and reduce congestion during school arrival and dismissal times. Although Board of Supervisors approval is needed for regulatory changes, the county’s Department of Public Works has the authority to install signage and the “No Stopping Anytime” signs were previously replaced with oversized signs.

On June 13, the county’s Traffic Advisory Committee unanimously recommended that the parking prohibitions be modified.
