Civic San Diego is the advisory board for the Downtown Community Parking District. In October of 1999, the Mayor and City Council adopted a Comprehensive Downtown Parking Plan and allocated downtown parking meter revenues for 25 years to develop, construct and maintain a seven-story parking structure at Sixth Avenue and Market Street. The structure, called "Park-It-On-Market", opened in January 2001 and contains 500 spaces with ground level retail shops. Parking meter revenues were also used to fund the construction of a 1,200-space parking structure in the East Village at 6th Street and K Street. Other parking facilities are planned for downtown.
Promote La Jolla is the designated advisory board for the La Jolla Community Parking District but it is not active at this time.
