On August 12, 2013, Council approved implementation of a pilot No Overnight Parking program on certain streets within the Crescent Park neighborhood for one year. Developed in response to resident concerns about non-resident parking, the program aimed to restrict overnight parking to Crescent Park resident permit holders only. Crescent Park residents petitioned by street, and the City implemented a pilot No Overnight Parking program requiring residents to display a valid City of Palo Alto parking permit on their vehicles to park on-street between the hours of 2:00 am and 5:00 am. Residents of streets within the program boundaries and whose streets have opted to participate in the program are eligible to purchase permits. Residents are allowed up to two annual permits per household at a cost of $100 each.
Based on the success of the program, Council authorized staff in September 2014 to continue the Crescent Park No Overnight Parking program trial. Since that time, the intrusion of non-residential parkers has continued into additional streets, and 20 streets have successfully petitioned to implement permit parking.
Residents living on approved streets interested in being part of the program, or who have additional questions, are welcome to email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a petition for their block face to begin the process.
