Automated and Mechanical Parking Facilities

PA18-058  Automated Parking Systems Rendering

Project Description

The City of San Mateo is evaluating an amendment to the zoning code to address automated parking facilities. Automated parking systems are mechanical facilities that store and retrieve vehicles for the user. The system allows vehicles to be stacked/parked vertically, thereby maximizing the floor space.

Project Update

Staff is evaluating feedback received from the Planning Commission and gathering additional information.  The code amendments will be brought back to the Planning Commission at a noticed public hearing.
