The Santa Maria City Council is set to talk about a couple of possible no stopping zones that would affect parking on certain streets.

It could mean the loss of parking on Hanson Way and White Court from midnight to 4 a.m., 7 days a week.

Public Works estimates this could cost around $7,000 to install signs and poles.

The recommendation comes after city staff was reportedly contacted about a large number of people living in RVs and camping trailers parked along the streets. Complaints included concerns about limited sight distance at driveways, littering and trespassing.

Another no stopping zone is being considered on South Palisade Drive that would result in the removal of two parking spots.

Overflow parking for Marian Regional Medical Center is nearby and neighbors say the road can get congested during peak hours.

The city council is scheduled to meet at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Council Chambers on East Cook Street.
