Parking Updates

Palm, Park View, Winsor - Parking restrictions will remain in place Monday, 2/5 through Wednesday, 2/7.  The contractor requested this so the temporary construction fence trucks/trailers can haul away materials.  All three days may not be needed.  Pete Palmer will notify residents immediately if parking restrictions can be lifted sooner.  

  • Minimal parking restrictions will be needed starting on June 3rd.  Residents will be notified at least one week before any summer restrictions are neeed.

El Cerrito - Parking restrictions remain lifted this week through the end of the school year.

As a reminder, parking restrictions have been needed to assure emergency vehicle egress during construction hours. This is per the City of Piedmont Fire Department request

The District remains committed to providing regular updates to the community regarding the Witter Field renovation.  We understand that construction is inconvenient, and disruptive and appreciate your continued patience, understanding, and cooperation as we complete this important project.
