In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the City’s parking enforcement division is implementing the following temporary modifications to parking policy in an effort to reduce the financial burden on residents and local businesses:
Suspension of street sweeping restrictions in residential neighborhoods;
All metered parking spaces will be free for the first 20 minutes to facilitate delivery and pick-up of food from restaurants. After the 20-minute limit, these spaces will be enforced as usual and as posted.
We encourage restaurants that are offering take-out and delivery options to download and post signs created by the Economic Development Division to help distinguish these locations.
Staff will continue to enforce:
Other "No Parking" zones;
All painted curbs with time limits;
Preferential parking districts requiring parking permits;
Temporary-no parking signs;
72-hr violations (prior to tow in residential areas, assuming the vehicle is parked where it is registered, we will attempt to contact registered owner). Abandoned vehicles will be towed;
Emergency access and public safety violations, including, but not limited to: parking in alleyways, red zones, blocking fire hydrants, parking in fire lanes, and “No stopping, parking, or standing anytime” zones with posted signs.
Parking garages will continue to operate as normal. Additional measures will be considered as the situation evolves.
