Regional parking policies to be discussed at SPUR on Thursday 

The issue of parking in San Francisco, long a matter of debate between transit advocates and car owners, has been amped up with recent events, and will be discussed once again later this week.

The Municipal Transportation Agency, which oversees parking matters in San Francisco, introduced a proposal in October to increase the hours on its parking meters, and the Recreation and Park Department is considering adding meters to some spots in Golden Gate Park.

On Thursday, SPUR, a local think tank, will host regional planning officials to discuss how cities can try to accommodate motorists looking for parking while also moving forward with reducing the reliance on driving in the Bay Area.

Representatives from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, the region’s lead infrastructure planning body, will speak at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday. The event, which is free for SPUR members and $5 for the rest of the public, takes place at SPUR’s headquarters at 654 Mission Street.
