Big Bear, Ca, December 13, 2011, 4:00pm – At the December San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors meeting, CEO Greg Devereaux updated the board on progress made on county parking codes for mountain area businesses.  Earlier this year Supervisor Neil Derry brought to the boards attention that the minimum parking requirement for businesses in the County was difficult for some mountain area businesses to achieve.  “The current requirements are too onerous for mountain businesses where space is limited and it is negatively impacting the local economy,” Supervisor Derry said. “Residents and patrons do not want a concrete jungle in their beautiful forest and want access to a variety of businesses and service providers for their unique lifestyle.”  One proposed change would reduce the 10 parking space minimum requirement for restaurants to a four-space minimum.  The parking study must go before the county planning commission for review before it can be brought back to the board. It is anticipated that the board will receive the proposal in the Spring of 2012.
