- MEASURE S and P Citywide Sidewalk Repair Project Phase 7 – Schedule through Sep 15 | See list of address segments
- Waterfront Lot Phase 2, Marina Parking Lot Improvement Project – Map of Work Area
The parking lot to about 97% complete. We are planning a ribbon-cutting event in late Sep time frame.
As of February 21, the gates at the Waterfront Lot were removed and the lot is now a self pay lot. Once the construction is complete, the Marina Lot and Waterfront Lot will operate as one lot referred to as the Waterfront Lot. With this change, the rate was adjusted. The rate in the existing Waterfront Lot was $1.00 per half hour with a daily max of $15.00. Now the rate is lower - $1.50 per hour with a daily max of $10.00 to match the Marina Lot rate. Courtesy notices (see sample below) will be issued letting visitors know of the change. Learn more about how to use the convenient ParkMobile app throughout Monterey on the ParkMobile web page at monterey.org/parking. The lot zone is #21031 using the app. Updates on the lot improvement project are posted at monterey.org/waterfront-lot-ph2.

Q&A - HAVE A PUBLIC WORKS CONSTRUCTION-RELATED QUESTION? EMAIL SUGGEST@MONTEREY.ORG
Question: How do I report a raised sidewalk that has a potential to cause a tripping hazard?
Answer: If the uplift is caused by a city tree the city will fix it, otherwise it might be on the responsibility of the property owner or a utility company to address the issue. Typically, a Public Works crew will go out to identify the uplift, measure the uplift, paint the uplift and take pictures. We keep a log and send the appropriate party a letter to address the issue.
