Hollywood May Put The Squeeze On Parking Spaces

HOLLYWOOD (CBS4) – Hollywood visitors and residents could soon be asking the question, “Can I fit in that space?”

According to CBS 4 news partner The Miami Herald, parking spaces may be getting smaller as the city tries to make up for lost spaces from construction on side streets connecting A1A to the Broadwalk.

The Hollywood City Commission will look at reducing the size of parking spaces by a couple of feet.

Right now, parallel parking spaces are 8 ½ wide by 18 feet long.

The new spaces would be just 8 ½ by 16 feet long.

“It’s an opportunity to save as many parking spaces as possible,” said Community Redevelopment Agency Director Jorge Camejo.

“Preserving parking has been recognized as a top priority.”

The city commission will examine the parking issue at 5 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall, 2600 Hollywood Blvd.
