Downtown Parking Board Member Qualification
Member Qualifications
The Downtown Parking Board has seven members. Each member serves a four year term. The board consists of representatives from the following: a Downtown Business Association; an owner or representative of an owner of a private off-street parking facility located downtown; a representative from San José State University; a downtown resident; a member of an organization representing downtown arts and/or special events; and two at large individuals with expertise in business and/or finance. Members review annual capital and operating budgets, award of consultant and vendor contracts, review marketing of downtown parking programs, make recommendations on parking rates, supply and demand, and make recommendations on improvements of parking facilities and operations.

The City Council is the final decision making body of the City, and the board acts on all matters referred to it by the council.

Political Reform Act of 1974
The Conflict of Interests Section of the Political Reform Act applies to the board; however, board members are not required to file a Statement of Economic Interest.

Members are appointed to the board upon the mayor's recommendation to the City Council and the City Council's approval of such recommendation.

Board members are expected to attend all Downtown Parking Board meetings. San José Municipal Code Section 2.08.060 specifies that a member, who has unexcused absences from any three consecutive regular meetings, or 20% of the meetings in a calendar year, is deemed to have resigned from the board. For further information about the board, please call the board staff at (408) 535-3833.
