Curbside Access Plans (formerly Area Management Plans) are developed to comprehensively address an area's changing conditions and acknowledge the needs of diverse user groups.

May 2021: The Tennyson Curbside Access Plan (CAP) Committee, composed of Curbside & Parking (C&P) staff and representatives from Berkeley Regis United Neighbors, Tennyson Berkeley Business Association, and Tennyson Local Maintenance Districts, has been working since July 2020 to develop an on-street parking and curb lane management plan for a portion of Berkeley Park, focusing on the Tennyson corridor & adjacent streets and avenues. This CAP is designed to address current (and pre-COVID 19) levels of curbside activity and parking demand.
In January 2021, a draft of this CAP was mailed to residents, businesses, and property owners within the study area to solicit feedback. Additionally, C&P gave a CAP presentation on January 29th at a Council District 1 “Ask-A-Planner” virtual event. The committee has since assessed input received, made modifications where appropriate, and prepared for plan implementation. As a result, C&P is pleased to share the final CAP. Please see the enclosed plan to review final recommendations. Highlights include:
- On the streets, convert the existing 2-hour 8am-6pm parking restrictions to 8am-8pm to provide parking turnover for businesses and residents later into the evening.
- Introduce 2-hour (8am-8pm) parking time limits along portions of Stuart, Utica, and Tennyson to increase parking space availability. Eligible addresses can apply for Residential Parking Permits (RPPs).
- Introduce 3-hour (8am-8pm) parking time limits along portions of the avenues between 38th and 46th & Vrain and Raleigh where residential addresses are limited to accommodate patrons and guests with longer-term parking needs. Eligible households can apply for RPPs.
- Create a Tennyson Area (TA) RPP to allow permit holders the ability to park anywhere within the blue area depicted in the plan (today RPP holders must park on their block) to provide residents with more flexibility.
- Introduce 30-minute (8am-8pm) parking spaces at strategic locations along the corridor to provide frequent parking turnover for patrons where appropriate.
- Install additional disability parking spaces on Tennyson and 39th and 41st to provide convenient and comfortable on-street vehicle access for those with mobility challenges.
- Install an additional bike corral on Tennyson north of 44th to accommodate bike and scooter parking demand.
Residences located along blocks with new time limits will need to satisfy eligibility requirements before Tennyson Area RPPs can be obtained. New applicants should submit RPP applications by Monday, June 21, 2021.

Eligible households may be granted up to one annual RPP per licensed driver and one Guest Parking Permit per household. Typically, businesses, mixed use properties, and large multi-unit developments are ineligible for RPPs. If you have a Northwest (NW) RPP, this will be converted to a TA RPP and you will not need to renew permit(s) in August. Rather, TA permit renewal will take place in March 2022 and a new Guest Parking Permit will be mailed in the coming weeks for interim use, September 2021 – March 2022.
Implementation is scheduled to begin the week of June 28, pending weather or unforeseen circumstance, and will take approximately 3-4 weeks to complete. C&P will coordinate with Right of Way Enforcement as this CAP is implemented and RPPs are received. If you have any questions, please contact C&P at email@example.com.
