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 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.
Appointed Board Members:
LJCPA 2014-2015 appointees
LJTC 2014-2015 appointees
Yolanda de Riquer
LJVMA 2014-2015 appointees
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 firstname.lastname@example.org,
for information about the parking pass program.

MOU between Coastal Commission and City for use of funds
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.
