Permit parking in the City of San Dimas is available to regulate and manage on-street parking problems. The goal is to create fair and equitable usage of on-street parking areas. This policy is enacted pursuant to the authority granted by section 22507 of the California Vehicle Code in response to parking on streets by nonresidents who do not visit or conduct business with City residents or businesses. Such parking by nonresidents results in neighborhood decline by reason of traffic congestion, noise, litter, traffic hazards, public safety and inability for residents to park their motor vehicles near their residences.
The Permit Parking Program is initiated through submission of a petition that is provided by the City for the consideration of a proposed permit parking district. The following administrative policy provides procedural and supplemental information for the implementation of the program.
