Village parking relief in the works


The Rancho Santa Fe Association is working on adding angled parking spaces on El Tordo near the park, a net gain of 28 parking spaces in the village.

As plans are underway to paint curbs for 42 two-hour parking spaces in high-priority village areas, Tom Farrar, the RSF Association’s interim building commissioner, said the angled spaces are meant to offset all-day parkers who would otherwise be pushed out into the surrounding neighborhood.

Farrar presented the plan for the angled spaces to the San Dieguito Planning Group on Sept. 8 and expects to bring it back to the RSF Association board for approval in October. The spaces will then need to be approved by the county.

The two-hour, timed spaces will include 19 spaces on Avenida de Acacias, 15 spaces on La Granada and eight on the stretch of La Granada near Rancho Santa Fe Flowers & Gifts.
