    I hoping to get some clarification from the community and local businesses about “curbside” parking that has obviously become a normal practice because of Covid and food delivery services. My question is what steps need to be taken in order to get these reserved curbside pick up spaces, and how much city street parking these businesses are allowed to take up.

    I live near the Whitaker on Edmunds/Fauntleroy and I think neighbors here would agree parking is a huge issue, not only because of the irregularities of ticketing but now understanding how to cope with/ respect these curbside areas to allow local businesses to best serve their customers.

    For example, Sound and Fog, coffee shop has a city issued permit for their curbside pick up parking, with a 15 minute limit.
    Also, there are food trucks that have obtained city issued permits to instate no parking and a towing penalty on Tuesday and Thursday in the area they occupy.

    I understand these businesses have gone through the necessary process to have city issued permits, however what do we do about the other ones that don’t? In my neighborhood we have random signage changing in front of Origins Cannabis shop. I have noticed and conversed with neighbors and local business owners that they (origins) do not have a permit and seem to move the sign around everyday; taking up more and more city street parking. I believe it’s been reported to “Find it Fix it” (a very useful app. For these issues)
    For the local community sake can we clarify this to avoid ticketing and towing?

    FYI This business (Origins Cannabis Shop) has an enormous parking lot as is for their customers and tows regularly from there. I am just trying to clarify this for our neighbors and hopefully making businesses more responsible and accountable for reserving parking that should be available to local residents.

    2 Much Whine

    Hi Emu1121, you already posted this exact same concern previously about Origins. WSB responded that they have a valid curbside permit and have had one for months yet you’re posting again with the same concern. Are you looking for a different answer, just venting or what? I just searched for “Seattle curbside pickup permit process” and found a bunch of information including:

    Interested in having a Curbside Priority Pick-Up Zone near your business? Here’s what you need to know:

    Businesses can call or email 684-ROAD to request a Curbside Priority Pick-Up Zone. They should provide business name, address and contact information.

    Staff will review requested locations to make sure a new zone will fit within the nearby curb regulations. Generally, we will install one new zone per block, so it may need to be located where it can serve several stores on the block.

    Curbside Priority Pick-Up Zone signs are not assigned to specific businesses, and can be used among several businesses along the block.

    I hope this answers your questions.
