The city of Cupertino is seeking public comment on a proposal to construct a 47-space parking area at McClellan Ranch Preserve at 22241 McClellan Rd.

The project includes constructing a 27-space main parking area and an approximately 20-space overflow parking area on a 1.4 acre site currently used as an overflow parking area for McClellan Ranch, the city states. The parking spots would take up about .53 acres of the site, with the remaining areas dedicated for restoration planting.

After an Initial Study found the project would not have a significant affect on the environment, city staff is proposing to adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND). A public review about the MND will take place on July 5 at 9:30 a.m. Public input about the city’s findings are due no later than June 9.

To review the Initial Study, go here. The draft MND, Initial Study, and reference documents are available for review at the Cupertino City Hall, at 10300 Torre Ave., Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and at the Cupertino Library, located at 10800 Torre Ave.

  1. This sounds like a great idea. Perhaps it will bring more visitors to the wonderful updated facilities. But then again, most Cupertino residents don’t like to encourage people visiting or living here.

    As a nearby neighbor of this property for many years, I have seen “overflow” parking in this space exactly once. There does not appear to be a recurring problem with overflow from McClellan Ranch Park’s existing lot. Unless there is a more compelling rationale for additional parking, there are plenty of other uses for the money that would be spent on it. The current arrangement of parking overflow on a dirt lot, if necessary, seems to be sufficient. Let’s not try to solve a problem where none exists.
