New Vehicle Parking Restrictions Protect Public Safety
New restrictions prohibiting parking of nonconforming vehicles, including recreational vehicles (RV’s) on public streets and establishing a permit system for parking were recently approved. Nonconforming vehicles are those greater than 20 feet in length, include detached trailers, 8 feet in width and 7 ½ feet in height.
Residents with nonconforming vehicles may obtain a temporary permit valid for a period of 72 hours up to 20 times in a calendar year. Permits may be used consecutively for a maximum of two, 72-hour periods. Vehicles displaying temporary permits must be parked within 100 feet of the permittee’s property line. Permits are available on the City’s website and on the My La Mirada app.
“The nonconforming vehicle ordinance aims to reduce impacted visibility at driveways and intersections and increase available on-street parking for residents,” says Senior Administrative analyst Mark Rounds.
Signs will be posted informing the public about the new parking restrictions, which become effective in mid-October. Warnings will be issued until the effective date.
