Orange County Supervisor Katrina Foley (2nd District) and Joe Mendoza, General Manager of the Rossmoor Community Services District, released the following statements in response to the unanimous support by the Orange County Board of Supervisors to address the issue of total street parking closures during street sweeping in the unincorporated community of Rossmoor.
“After taking office in March of 2021 I learned that Rossmoor residents are currently forced to park outside their neighborhoods when street sweeping occurs due to total street parking closures”, said Supervisor Foley. “For many years community members asked that street sweeping occur on alternate days so they are not forced to park outside of their neighborhoods. I worked directly with the Rossmoor Community Services District and Orange County Public Works to finally find a solution. The Orange County Board of Supervisors recently approved funding to allow street sweepers to alternate streets. I will continue to partner with Rossmoor residents to address these important quality of life issues.”
“For more than 30 years, residents have not had an alternative and were restricted from parking on all Rossmoor residential streets on street sweeping days from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.”, said Joe Mendoza, Rossmoor General Manager of the Rossmoor Community Services District. “Supervisor Foley heard our concerns and initiated this schedule change to improve the quality of life for Rossmoor residents. We are extremely appreciative of her leadership and assistance. The Rossmoor Community Services District Board of Directors would like to sincerely thank Supervisor Katrina Foley for representing Rossmoor residents by successfully leading the effort to change the street sweeping ordinance in Rossmoor to provide a schedule that is anticipated to provide significant parking relief to our approximately 10,500 residents and 3,500 homes. By changing the street sweeping schedule to the first and third Mondays for the odd numbered addresses side of the street, and the even-numbered side of the street on the second and fourth Mondays, residents and visitors are provided with parking alternatives to avoid a parking violation ticket. .”
Rossmoor residents are encouraged to reach out to Manuel Chavez, Supervisor Katrina Foley’s Constituent Service Manager for Rossmoor, to share any concerns. Manuel can be reached at [email protected]
