Update (October 22): For reasons unknown to us, the City Council has pulled the agenda item that deals with the question of parking in Claraboya. We will keep you updated as more information comes available. See below for our original announcement:
On Tuesday, October 27, Claremont City Council will decide whether or not to restrict parking on the streets in Claraboya near the entrance to Johnson's Pasture.
Because there is no parking lot at this entrance, parking restictions on Claraboya streets will effectively deny access to Wilderness Park visitors who use this entrance as an alternative to the more crowded Mills "loop" access.
The Traffic and Transportation Committee has already voted unanimously to recommend to the City Council that this request be denied. However, there is still a possibility that the City Council will ignore the recommendation and vote to restrict parking, as they have done in the past with several streets near the Mills entrance.
It is important to attend the City Council meeting next Tuesday and demonstrate opposition to this proposal.
If you are unable to attend, please consider sending an e-mail message to members of the Council, expressing your opposition to the proposed parking restrictions. Follow this link for Council members' e-mail addresses:
