A request has been submitted to include 5th Street West between 5th Avenue West and 6th Avenue West within the Westside Parking Management Zone. The Westside Parking Management Zone was established by Ordinance 1759 on August 2015. At that time, it was found that within the vicinity of Flathead High School the demand for curbside parking far exceeds the curbside space available resulting in limited availability of curbside parking for residents, congested streets and compromised roadside safety. Accordingly, residents, students and teachers have to purchase parking permits in order to park on the street within the Parking Management Zone. Ordinance 1759 allows for the amendment of the Parking Management Zone by increasing or reducing the boundary after holding a public hearing before the Kalispell City Planning Board. Requests to be added or removed from the management zone shall be done at the block face level (both sides) of the avenue or street by petition from at least 75% of the property owners. In this case, a petition has been submitted by property owners on the frontage described above to be included in the Parking Management Zone. The petition includes a request to be include within the Parking Management Zone from 6 of the 7 property owners (85%). The area proposed to be included within the Westside Parking Management Zone can be described as the public right-of-way between the southern boundary of Block 176 of Kalispell Addition Number 1 and the northern boundary of Block 177 of Kalispell Addition Number 1, and between the eastern edge of the right-of-way of 6th Avenue and the western edge of the right-of-way for 5th Avenue West. Documents pertaining to the agenda items are on file for public inspection at the Kalispell Planning Department, 201 First Avenue East, Kalispell, MT 59901, and are available for public review during regular office hours. In addition, information on the agenda item is posted on our website at https://mt-kalispell.civicplus.com/314/Planning-Board under planning board “upcoming agenda.”  Interested persons are encouraged to present their views and concerns to the Planning Board.
