At the October 20, 2020 City Council meeting, the City Council took action focused primarily on the Del Cerro area, but also addressed overall Preserve issues. These actions followed meetings on August 18, 2020, and September 1, 2020, where Council issued a number of directives, including a temporary parking moratorium on a 390-foot section of Crenshaw Boulevard, south of Crest Road with the addition of a drop-off area, creation of a holistic Preserve parking analysis, directed Staff to provide an update on the installation of entry gates at the Burma Road and Rattlesnake trailheads, research on parking enforcement alternatives and a parking reservation system in the Del Cerro area.

These directives were undertaken due to the ongoing traffic, noise and safety concerns that have been raised in the Del Cerro area for years. Balancing quality-of-life concerns for neighbors living near the Preserve with public access has been an ongoing challenge.

There was extensive public outreach leading up to the October 20 meeting, including a well-attended Preserve Public Forum on October 13, letters sent to all Homeowner Associations (HOA) adjacent to the Preserve, listserv messages, and meetings with multiple affected HOAs. Robust late correspondence on this issue was received prior to the Council meeting and over 30 individuals spoke or sent in recorded messages.
