San Bruno Wants to Cut Down Limo Access at SFO

Posted on March 20, 2008 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

SAN BRUNO, Calif. — The San Bruno City Council agreed to push ahead with a new ordinance that will ban limousines from residential streets close to the San Francisco International Airport, said Mayor Larry Franzella. Residents in the Belle Air neighborhood often have trouble parking since limousine drivers waiting to be called to the airport choose to park in the area. The neighborhood is located off of San Bruno Ave. on the other side of Highway 101. After months of working with airport officials, San Bruno decided to take matters into its own hands by banning the big limos from residential streets.

Problems began about a year ago when residents complained about the limos. City officials began working with the airport to create a solution. In January, the airport opened a limo staging lot with a real-time flight monitor, beverage vending machine, space for a mobile catering truck, and portable rest rooms, according to a Feb. 27 letter written by Henry Thompson, assistant deputy airport director of operations management. Information about the new lot was mailed to more than 1,200 limo operating services, he said.

The new ordinance will be brought back to the council for review in April and will likely go into effect early this summer, Franzella said.
