Draft of Letter to Supervisor Rodoni regarding Overnight Parking
Dear Supervisor Rodoni,
Thank you for your prompt response regarding the problem of overnight parking on "C" street, and other residential streets in Point Reyes Station.
At your request the PRSVA contacted the pastors of the Point Reyes Station Presbyterian Church and Sacred Heart Parish in Olema.
Both Churches declined to allow overnight camping in their parking lots citing concerns about liability, neighbors complaints, child safety, recent vandalism and crime.
The Point Reyes Station Village Association requests your help in providing signage that would prohibit street camping and occupation of vehicles overnight, similar to that at White House Pool (county) and Tomales Bay Trailhead (GGNRA).
We have discussed with and complained to Sheriff Robert Doyle's office and Captain David Agustus who promises his department will heighten vigilance and be more responsive to residents' complaints about disrupting the peace, threats, litter, intimidation tactics, drug use and sales, theft, vandalism, health violations, ( human waste) and pollution of GGNRA wetlands.
Deputy Sheriffs have been very willing to help us but tell us to ask the County for proper signage.
It is the key, without it there is no authority to manage this problem.
The Sheriffs substation is short yards away from the affected areas that include the Dance Palace * and Walnut Place and can be easily patrolled.
The affected areas where overnight parking occurs and where we are requesting signage includes these streets
A street (Main) from highway 1 to end of A
B street- entire length
C- entire length
Mesa Rd. - Commodore Rd to Los Reyes St.
2nd-through 6th streets - entire length of each street
Toby St. and parking lot at playground
We are very interested in the proposed ordinance currently being considered by the Board of Supervisors restricting vehicles and equipment parking on county roads.
Specifically the language stating" the prohibition of the standing or parking bus, camper, camper trailer, semi-trailer, trailer coach, trailer bus, 5th wheel travel trailer, factory- built housing, house car, mobile home, motorhome, recreational vehicle or RV"
As you know this small beautiful village with its limited parking and historic neighborhoods is very vulnerable.
