Parking Updates

Palm, Park View, upper Winsor - Parking restrictions will remain in place on Palm, upper Winsor, and parts of Park View.  Restrictions remain due to the continuing Field Turf material deliveries and the large equipment and asphalt delivery trucks required paving operations.

We continue to receive complaints regarding trucks arriving before 8am and idling in front of residences. Please continue to report incidents such as this. We will continue to notify Bothman and their sub contractors, asking that offending drivers not return to the jobsite. We are also asking PPD to help monitor and enforce any truck traffic violations. 

El Cerrito - Parking restrictions remain lifted until further notice.

Winsor Driveway Gate Closure
The pedestrian access gate on the Winsor Avenue driveway, which many residents use to access the Piedmont Park off-leash dog area, will be closed for your safety during working hours Monday-Friday from 7:30am to 4pm.  The gate will be locked and chained during those periods.  Please respect this closure since construction activity on the driveway could pose a safety hazard to pedestrians and dogs.

We will keep the gate open for pedestrian access to the off-leash dog area outside of working hours and on weekends.  Please email Pete Palmer if the gate is chained outside of designated working hours.

Drainage Calculations
A 54 page City approved encroachment permit and Verde storm water report was issued on 8/25/23.  Per the City’s request, PUSD has reduced the peak flow rate for the Witter Field area by approximately 20%, largely by detaining the water from storm events in the subsurface piping and rock drainage profile.

The District remains committed to providing regular updates to the community regarding the Witter Field renovation.  We understand that construction is inconvenient, and disruptive and appreciate your continued patience, understanding, and cooperation as we complete this important project.
