La Jolla Coastal Access and Parking Board

The La Jolla Coastal Access and Parking Board was formed for the purposes outlined in the draft statement dated April 22, 1993 and the memo dated April 26, 1993 both written by the City's Transportation and Land Use Committee Consultant, subsequently approved by the San Diego City Council under Resolution R-282102 and thereafter approved by the California Coastal Commission on August 13, 1993. These approvals define the La Jolla Coastal Access and Parking Plan.

La Jolla Coastal Access and Parking Plan
Broadly speaking the Plan consists of two elements: (a)implementation of a remote (outside La Jolla) parking reservoir and shuttle system, and (b) other short-term and/or long-term parking and traffic circulation related programs or improvements, both subject to the approval of the City of San Diego and the Coastal Commission.

The funding for the Plan is primarily derived from developer impact fees collected by the California Coastal Commission and accrued interest. The collected fees are required to be split on a 50-50 basis for the two elements of the Plan. Funds from other sources are acceptable. The fund is currently held by the City of San Diego in a dedicated interest-bearing account. A small portion of the fund is held by the Board for operational cash flow.

The Board
The Board is comprised of 3 appointees each by the La Jolla Town Council (LJTC), the La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA), and the La Jolla Village Merchant Association (LJVMA). Since early 2010 the Board has been meeting the first Tuesday of the month, 4:00 pm at the La Jolla Recreation Center. Check posted agenda for meeting day and time.

  • Current Activity
    Since 2010, the Board's activity has been limited to acquiring monthly parking passes for La Jolla's private parking lots and underground garages and reselling them at a discount to employers and individuals. This increases the number of on-street parking available to customers and tourists.

    Please contact Sheila Fortune, 858-454-5718 or, for information about the parking pass program.

    Prior Activity
    In addition to the current activity the Board for many years oversaw a discounted monthly bus pass program which was discontinued in 2009 when the public transit system discontinued their monthly passes. The Board previously tested a community valet system as well as studied the feasibility of the remote parking/shuttle system. The activities of the Board were destined to be folded into the La Jolla Community Parking Advisory Board but has remained independent in order to carry on its purpose.
