The single biggest issue faced by the merchants and residents in North Fair Oaks is the lack of parking. Abandoned vehicles, operational vehicles that stay longer than the time permits, and businesses that "borrow" public parking spaces further reduce the number of available parking spaces.
To address these problems, I have directed funding to increase the Sheriff's Office Parking Enforcement presence on Middlefield Road and in North Fair Oaks. The new parking enforcement program will begin by early September. I hope this will help ease the parking situation by ensuring that existing parking spaces are available.
