Parking–or sometimes the lack of it–is a big issue in Lynwood. Residents sometimes will be frustrated that they can’t even find a spot to park on the block where they live.
That’s why more and more residents are turning to creating parking districts in their neighborhood.
“A parking district essentially controls who can park on your street,” explained Michelle Ramirez, Lynwood Community Development Director. “Neighbors can get together and work with us to solve the parking challenges near their homes.”
How it works is rather simple:
The city will mark the street to see how many cars can be parked on the street and permits will be issued for those who are part of the district. Only vehicles registered to a participating residences are eligible for a parking permit.
If a car that is not permitted is on the street, it will be cited or, in some cases, towed.
To learn how parking districts work and how to create one, please contact the City’s Public Safety Manager, JD Whitaker, at (310) 603-0220, Ext. 313 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
