|Parking @ UT|
What's on this page
Each residential unit at University Terrace (UT) is assigned one specific, numbered parking space according to documents filed with the City of Berkeley (COB) and Alameda County. The Association cannot change your space. There are three guest spaces (# 92-94) at the north end of the Jefferson Avenue cul-de-sac, between Building 1 and St. Joseph the Worker Church, on the west side of the street. These are marked “Reserved Guest Space – UTB HOA Only.”
Streets surrounding the UT complex are restricted to a two-hour limitation on parking between 8am and 7pm (except Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays), unless you obtain a parking permit for “Area C” from the City of Berkeley. The following COB parking permits are available (fees are as of October 2014):
You may obtain "Area C" Visitor and Residential permits at the COB Customer Service Finance Department at 1947 Center Street (1st floor), Berkeley, CA 94704, Phone: 981-7200. For more information, go to the Berkeley Residential Preferential Parking Program website.
On the streets surrounding the UT complex, parking is prohibited one morning a month between 9am and noon for street cleaning. The days for each street are:
Unauthorized parking in your assigned space
If someone parks in the space assigned to your unit at UT, you may have the vehicle towed at the owner’s expense. To protect against unauthorized towing, there are two recommended ways of authorizing towing:
Either way, you will need to be present when the vehicle is towed, and you will have to sign for the towing and give your contact information, per Section 22658 of the California Vehicle Code (CVC). If this is inconvenient for you, you may consider leaving a note on the windshield of the vehicle in your space, explaining that the space is reserved for a UT resident. If you choose this course, it is probably best for security reasons not to identify the unit associated with your particular space. You may also consider contacting a UT Board member or a member of the UT Parking Committee. Subject to their own personal schedules, one of these individuals may be able to meet Husteads at the towing site and sign as the authorized agent of UT.
Unauthorized parking in other UT spaces
For parking violations on UT grounds other than unauthorized use of parking spaces assigned to specific units, towing requests must be initiated either by UT’s property management company (WMG), by a UT Board member, or by a member of the UT Parking Committee. The UT Board has adopted a towing policy that describes three circumstances under which a vehicle can be towed:
If you want to request a tow for these reasons, you will need to contact either the property management company (WMG), a UT Board member, or a member of the UT Parking Committee.
Parking in red zones
While UT is private property, the red zones that are painted within the complex are governed by the same DMV codes that govern red zones anywhere in the state. Movement both into and out of any parking areas in our complex is limited. While parking in the red zones inconveniences others, at worst it could endanger all of us. To be clear, read the DMV code.
The three guest spaces on Jefferson Avenue are intended to be available for visitors of UT residents, as well as for University staff, potential home buyers, and maintenance, gardening, and service vehicles (see Section 9, p. 10, of the Seller’s Disclosure Statement). As described on the map of on-site parking assignments for UT (Attachment E to the Seller’s Disclosure Statement, Note 4), the guest spaces “will be controlled by the Homeowner’s Association and not used for individual unit parking.” To ensure equitable access for all UT residents to the guest spaces, the UT Board has authorized the use of a Guest Pass system. Individual UT residents may download the Guest Pass (in pdf format) and print it out for the use of their guests. The UT Board has adopted the following time limits for guest space use:
Failure to abide by these guest-space time limits falls in the category of a violation of governing documents under UT’s towing policy. Towing for violation of guest space time limits can only be initiated by the property management company (WMG), a member of the UT Board, or a member of the UT Parking Committee.
Maintenance and service workers
Space #21 in front of the UT Tool Shed is designated as parking for maintenance and service vehicles for vendors providing service to UTHOA. There are two other spaces on Jefferson, #50 and #51. Non-maintenance vehicles will be towed at the vehicle owner’s expense.
