The California Transportation Commission (CTC) was established in 1978 by Assembly Bill 402 (Ingalls) out of a growing concern for a single, unified California transportation policy. The Commission replaced and assumed the responsibilities of four independent bodies: The California Highway Commission, the State Transportation Board, the State Aeronautics Board, and the California Toll Bridge Authority.
In March 1984, more than 100 industry people and vendors gathered in Monterey, CA, to discuss mutual concerns in the field of parking management and control. As a result of this meeting, the California Public Parking Association was created.
The CPPA has established the following organizational goals: To build and maintain a statewide organization of parking professionals; to foster mutual support among members and promote and develop parking management as a profession; to inform and support members in dealing with and solving parking problems; to provide an understanding of parking principles and practices through information sharing, education and training; to act as a unifying force in the state of California to monitor, advocate, and promote parking related legislation which will aid and benefit members in the performance of their jobs.
The CPPA has successfully sponsored and provided support or opposition for legislation affecting association members and employs a full-time lobbyist in Sacramento.
