Our business is located next to the Ryan Ranch Daycare Center in an industrial business park. Historically, the daycare center depended on the parking spaces located at 4 Justin Court. When we moved our business to Justin Court, half of the 14 front parking spaces were used on a daily basis by the daycare center's employees. The daycare center's clients used the remaining parking spaces freely and frequently.
We asked Donna Thomas, the Daycare Center's Director, numerous times that neither her clients nor her employees use our parking spaces. We posted numerous signs and we still have to defend our private property on a daily basis.
I am asking the City of Monterey Planning Department to reevaluate Use Permit 93-35 for the Ryan Ranch Daycare Center in regards to parking. The daycare center has a use permit for 116 children and 25 employees requiring only 19 parking spaces. Rick Marvin, the corrupt Senior Planner with the City of Monterey Planning Department believes that the 19 parking spaces are sufficient. A restaurant serving 116 customers would require 29 parking spaces plus 25 parking spaces for its 25 employees. Presently, numerous childcare center clients ignore the no parking signs and delay deliveries and pickups. The City of Monterey should treat the daycare center like any other business in the Ryan Ranch Business Park. The daycare center should be required to provide enough on-site parking for its clients and to stop relying on neighboring businesses for parking and access. The City of Monterey is allowing the Ryan Ranch Daycare Center to operate as a parasite and nuisance business.
