Big Bear Lake, CA – Today, Chief Executive Officer Greg Devereaux updated the Board of Supervisors regarding Supervisor Neil Derry’s proposal to ease the stringent county parking codes for mountain area businesses.
The county currently employs a universal, “one-size fits all” parking standard for all businesses mandating a certain number of parking stalls based on a variety of criteria. These criteria include features such as square footage and type of business, among others.
“The current requirements are too onerous for mountain businesses where space is limited and it is negatively impacting the local economy,” Supervisor Derry said. “Residents and patrons do not want a concrete jungle in their beautiful forest and want access to a variety of businesses and service providers for their unique lifestyle.”
One proposed change would reduce the 10 parking space minimum requirement for restaurant uses to a four space minimum.
The parking study must go before the county planning commission for review before it can be brought back to the board. It is anticipated that the board will receive the proposal in the Spring of 2012.
