The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority voted Tuesday to raise parking fees 25% at its long-term and remote lots to raise money for the airport's planned new terminal. Unaffected by the unanimous vote of Airport Authority members is the rate at the airport's short-term lot near the present terminal. Parking at the closer lot is by the hour and costs up to $18 a day, $3 more than the daily maximum at nearby lots at Los Angeles International Airport.

The city's $6-a-day parking fee at pier-area lots will change to a variable rate that will depend on the season and time of day. Council members this week approved the one-year experiment they hope will take more cars off city streets and boost revenue. "There are times when the lots are completely empty because people are hesitant to pay a $6 flat fee to go shopping," Mayor Gwen Forsythe said.

Glendale Community College officials are awaiting final approval from Gov. Pete Wilson for a plan to hike student parking fees, if necessary, to offset the costs of building a $6-million parking structure. The measure, written by Assemblyman Pat Nolan (R-Glendale), was passed unanimously in both houses of the state Legislature last Friday, said Mike MeCey, a spokesman for Nolan. Wilson is not expected to review it until mid-August.

The state parks department has postponed plans to charge for parking at Old Town State Historic Park, state officials said. An aide to Assemblyman Mike Gotch (D-San Diego), author of a bill to block the state Department of Parks and Recreation from imposing the fees, said Friday that the parking plan was an ill-conceived attempt at raising revenue, and, in the long run, could have ended up costing the state money.

A federal judge has denied a citizens group's request for a temporary injunction to discontinue weekend parking fees in the San Gabriel Canyon. The group, the Forest Preservation Society, filed suit in U.S. District Court last month to discontinue the $3-a-day parking fee, which has been in effect since Labor Day weekend. Fees are being collected on California Highway 39 at the base of the mountain, at the off-road vehicle area and at the Santa Fe Dam.

Parking at the harbor is a hassle and a major problem facing the Ventura Port District, but charging visitors to park is not the answer, the agency's board of commissioners decided Wednesday night. Port district staff recommended imposing parking fees at the Ventura Harbor beaches to generate money for the bankrupt agency and as a way to help maintain heavily trafficked parking lots.

Angel fans will have to pay an extra $2 to park at Anaheim Stadium during the American League playoffs and--if the ball club makes it--the World Series, the Anaheim City Council has voted. At the request of the Angels, the city raised the price of parking from $3 to $5. The increase is applicable only to the AL championship series and the World Series. Mayor Pro Tem Irv Pickler cast the lone dissenting vote. "I didn't think it was appropriate," Pickler said after the meeting.

Parking fees at Huntington Beach and Bolsa Chica state beaches will drop from $6 to $5 in May and June in a trial effort to encourage people to use state parking lots instead of neighborhoods. "People were causing increased traffic on the side streets;they were avoiding the lots," said state Sen. Marian Bergeson (R-Newport Beach), who last week asked the state Department of Parks and Recreation to reduce fees. The pilot program, however, already had been planned.

Students at College of the Canyons are divided over a proposed $20 mandatory parking fee which will be considered Wednesday by the district's Board of Trustees. The fee, which would be used for maintenance, lighting and an additional security officer, would be collected beginning with the fall semester. Student government leaders say the fee is necessary to meet the college's needs. But other students say the fee, if charged, should be lowered.
