A neighbor just texted me saying the city came by our street today (Thursday) advising that the "90 minute parking" is going to be waived for 90 days. Is anyone else hearing this in other areas? ( state / de la vina is where I am )

Cars can not be left on a city street more than 72 hours. Call SBPD, 805/897-2413 to reort them. You need the license plate number, its location and make/model & color of car.

City lots are super empty. They close now at 7pm - not the usual 10pm. Not worth paying an employee the way it’s looking.

Thanks for the link explaining why. I came home to bags over the 90min signs and an official poster taped to the pole saying the 90min restriction was being removed for 90days. And yes im on calle crespis. So it seems its only my area.

I think you might want to check with the city on this. According to the parking page linked below, 90 minute enforcement was happening again as of June 1. Street sweeping back on also, as of a few weeks ago.

I saw a meter maid writing a ticket on Gillespie Street and assumed it was because it was the only car parked there on street sweeping day.

They have not been ticketing vehicles for not moving for street sweeping since they started sweeping again on 6/15. But today everyone moved their cars anyway.

Back when street sweeping was suspended, Vehicle Douche left his three vehicles and didn't move them for two months. Calling Abandoned Vehicles hotline did nothing. One vehicle had no current rego tag, either. It wasn't until about a month ago that parking enforcement started up again, at least on our street.

Not true! Not true! City metermaids began circling the blocks again effective May 15! Believe me, already received a ticket on June 25! They are out there, albeit, not is such force as pre-COVID. Perhaps not all were hired back! As for the neighbor who uses the street as a personal parking lot, go online and report the vehicles - you can't park for more than 72 hours on a timed street without moving. Prior to reporting gather the vehicle information - license, make, model, color, etc. and date you first notice vehicle parked and date reporting! Hope this helps !

Great. Now that dude that stores his three vehicles on our street can let them all sit again for months on end, hogging parking spaces. We saw him checking on his vehicles just yesterday. This will make him very happy, while the rest of us have to park gawd-knows-where instead of in front of or close to our own residences. What a douche.

I hear ya - my neighbors store 2 beaters (each with a window that doesn't shut) on a public downtown street where residents are required to register and pay to park. The cars have barely moved in months, but the car storage has been going on for years.. They are permitted, they're just in addition to the other 3-4 vehicles in the fleet. I figure they have a well-placed friend in parking enforcement to be able to store 2 cars on a public street downtown.
