Monday - Friday
8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Prohibitive Parking Signs
The city uses prohibitive/no parking signs on streets where street sweeping efforts are greatly impacted by parked vehicles. Vehicles parked in areas that have been posted for no parking during street sweeping times will be issued a parking citation by the Department of Transportation’s Parking Compliance unit. Vehicles parked in areas posted as tow zones will be towed away and issued parking citations.

Time Restrictions
Do not park in a restricted parking area at any time within the posted hours even if a sweeper has already made a pass. Sweepers may make multiple passes to ensure an effective sweep.

The installation and use of prohibitive parking signs are limited due to the additional cost to install and enforce signs and the complexity of implementing revised sweeping schedules.
