Safety at these weekend events is dependent on the Avenue remaining vehicle-free
As most of you know, the Town closes San Anselmo Avenue to vehicle traffic on Fridays at 6:00PM and Saturdays at 5:00PM for the ON THE AVENUE event series. In addition, in August the SAN ANSELMO LIVE! music series began with shows on the Town Hall lawn and the Creek Park stage each night. These events are very well attended.
Over the past several weekends, vehicles have remained in the event area, which is on San Anselmo Avenue between Tamalpais and Tunstead Avenues, after the events got underway. No Parking signage for the event is visible on both sides of the street and at each end of the closure. It creates a dangerous condition when cars remain in the closure area as adults and children are in the street with the expectation that it is free of moving vehicles.
In partnership with the Central Marin Police Authority, the Town will be addressing this issue by increasing signage and requiring that any vehicle that remains parked within the closure area will receive a parking ticket and will not be allowed to exit the closure area until the end of the event and those streets have been reopened at 10:30pm.
We appreciate the community's cooperation and collaboration in this matter!
