Parking Compliance
The parking compliance program enforces posted parking regulations on a citywide basis in an effort to improve compliance with local and state parking regulations. Parking may be restricted for safety reasons, such as near a crosswalk, intersection, and on narrow or high volume roadways.

There may be limits on the amount of time a vehicle may park to support the needs of businesses; or parking may be reserved for special uses, such as individuals with disabilities and bus zones.

When vehicles are parked in violation of a posted regulation, a parking citation may be issued. To learn more about common parking violations and tips on how to avoid a parking citation review parking regulations. If you have questions regarding these parking regulations, please email Parking Compliance.

Parking Compliance staff primarily provide enforcement coverage for school zones, meter and other time restricted zones, freight and passenger loading zones, no parking/stopping zones, disabled parking spaces, residential permit parking zones, and fire hydrants. In addition, support service is provided during special events, or scheduled street maintenance or cleaning.
