The Huntington Beach Downtown Task Force, in its continuing effort to tackle problems in the area, focused last week on parking safety. The committee decided last Thursday to recommend that the City Council look into better security measures in the public parking structure, at Third Street and Walnut Avenue, and find a way to increase its use by downtown employees. "People tell me all the time that they don't feel safe and it smells like urine," task force member Kim Kramer said.

Huntington Beach will be offering two hours of free parking on Feb. 14 in the parking structure at Third Street and Walnut Avenue, but there's a catch. Residents and visitors will have to spend a minimum of $10 at any of the businesses on Main or Fifth streets in the downtown area in order to receive the parking voucher. The passes will be good only from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Valentine's Day and must be presented to the attendant upon checkout. — Anthony Clark Carpio Twitter: @acocarpio

As a 26-year resident of Huntington Beach, I'm excited about Bella Terra. I'm sorry about the experience Skip Pedigo had when trying to park there ("Sounding off," Jan. 12). However, I think he (and others) needs to think this through. First of all, I don't expect perfect conditions when parking at a place that is under construction. It's not fair to make a judgment against Bella Terra until it is completed. Second, there is a large parking structure located near the back of Bella Terra that can be reached without ever going through the construction area.

I want to start by saying that I feel both the Newport Beach City Council and city staff deserve a giant round of applause and a thank you for all their work during this month of August. Whether you agree or disagree with their decisions, I don't ever recall so many meetings on so many items in the same month. Due to all the happenings in Newport Beach, it has been difficult to choose any one particular topic. To begin with there is the expansion plan at John Wayne Airport -- scheduled to open by May of 2010 with a price tag of $512 million.

Upgrading the streetlights along Main Street could cost Huntington Beach a hefty amount of money, according to a presentation given by a member of city staff to the Downtown Task Force on Thursday. Aaron Klemm, energy project manager for Huntington Beach, told the group that the cost of upgrading the lights is estimated at $1,600 per fixture, or $40,000 per block. The improvements would be done along Main from Pacific Coast Highway to Orange Avenue and are aimed at increasing public safety.

Paul Clinton Usage of a central Downtown parking structure has doubled since last year, a sign of the popularity of the area, city officials said. Results of a survey, that counted the number of vehicles that used the Main Promenade parking structure over the weekend of May 11 to 13, showed that nearly twice as many cars used the lot this year as compared to last. "In general we're getting a lot more cars in there than we used to," said Steve Benson, the city's supervisor of parking and camping.

The Huntington Beach Downtown Task Force offered a three-pronged approach Feb.13 to parking problems in the area. Residents have often complained that downtown visitors and some employees tend to park in the neighborhood rather than in the parking structure, and often create noise and other disturbances. As a response, the committee recommended to the City Council three fixes that could potentially corral visitors into the 830-lot Main Promenade parking structure, between Walnut and Olive Avenue off Third Street.

Street closure could be problematic Once again, an Independent editorial ("Be open to street closure," March 22) tries to be well-meaning but lacks a big-picture understanding of the issue. Any success the largely "promotional" Surf City Nights enjoys has nothing to do with the suitability of closing any part of Main Street down on a permanent basis. I should add that I attended a previous Tuesday event and had a good time. I even sampled the outdoor barbecued ribs from Smokin' Mo's and bought some strawberries from one of the vendors.

Angelique Flores A day at the beach can be fun and relaxing, as long as you don't get a parking ticket. Parking a few blocks away from Downtown is free, but you have to walk a ways.Getting a spot closer to the beach and pier is going to cost you. But it may be worth it. "Park in the structures," suggests Carrie Benoit, a Downtown merchant. "It's the safest spot. You won't have to worry about time overlap and tickets." Knowledge is power in the effort to avoid a ticket or paying more than you have to for parking.

After six months of brainstorming, the Huntington Beach Downtown Task Force on Monday presented to the City Council its recommendations for making downtown safer. Council members decided some of the group's suggestions can be addressed immediately though others - including improving the lighting in the parking structure off Walnut Avenue and Third Street, finding a way to encourage downtown employees to park at the structure and increasing the number of surveillance cameras - may warrant further discussion.

The Huntington Beach Planning Commission further discussed the possibility of putting two tiered parking structures by the beach and increasing development in residential areas at a Downtown Specific Plan study session Tuesday. The Downtown Specific Plan is a long-range planning document that dictates building and parking specifications and design guidelines. The plan is being updated to increase development over the next 20 years. The update would consolidate the downtown from 11 separate districts to seven.

For Faith Beyer, $100 tips for ferrying passengers in a pedicab is one of several great things about her job. "I get to watch the sunset every night I work," said Beyer, 28. She is one of several riders who works for Tony Saccareccia's Blue Water Pedicab company based in Huntington Beach. And it helps her bad knees, too, she said. Beyer picks up most of her customers outside hotels along Pacific Coast highway in Huntington Beach and Ruby's restaurant on the pier. "It's too long of a walk and too short of a ride in a taxi," Saccareccia said.
