The Hollister City Council took steps in addressing the traffic and safety issues at Ladd Lane and Gabilan Hills schools on Monday night. The Hollister Unified School District, David Rubcic, of the City Engineering Department and the Hollister Police Department have created a plan to establish 3 hour parking zones in places where there was no legal parking to allow parents to park their cars and walk their students through the crosswalks. This will facilitate a safer environment than the current situation. The Council had been asked to address the problem by several concerned citizens.
This Ordinance (no. 1044) amends Chapter 10.24 of the Hollister Municipal Code by allowing parking on portions of Ladd Lane, near Ladd Lane School, and portions of Santa Ana Road near Gabilan Hills School, restricting parking on portions of Miller Road and apply time restrictions on portions of Ladd Lane, Sunset Drive and Santa Ana Road.
The ordinance has been introduced and will be up for approval at a subsequent CIty Council meeting.
