Parking News Update 11/6/2020

Thank you to community members for their patience with the resumption of the Residential Preferential Parking (RPP) program. To address concerns with mail delivery slowdowns, staff have further delayed ticketing enforcement. No citations will be issued until December 1. We appreciate your patience as we continue to transition back to providing Residential Preferential Parking to the community, and we thank you again for sharing your concerns with us.
