A proposal to allow nannies and other child-care providers special access to residential parking permits will be up for approval next month.
Last year, a group of moms petitioned the Municipal Transportation Agency to exempt out-of-town nannies from San Francisco’s residential parking program rules.
After reviewing the case, MTA officials recommended giving one eligible household a transferrable parking placard, to be placed on the vehicles of the child-care providers.
To qualify for the permit, a household would have to provide a birth certificate of a child under the age of 12, plus sign an affidavit swearing that the placard would only be used for child-care purposes.
The issue was discussed at the MTA’s Policy and Governance Committee on Tuesday. The three-person committee appeared split on the proposal, with member Cheryl Brinkman opposed to it, and Jerry Lee for it. The third member, Cameron Beach, did not state an opinion.
On February 1, the full seven-person MTA Board of Directors will vote on the proposal.
