Note about temporary parking permits and oversized/commercial vehicles

We’d like to issue a special note about our enforcement of overnight parking for oversized and commercial vehicles. Beginning on June 1, 2018, we’ll be strictly enforcing the following municipal code:

ยง SGMC 72.033 (A) and (B) Vehicles for Which Permits Shall Not Be Issued

(A) No all-night parking permit shall be issued to any person permitting the all-night parking of any vehicle, other than a passenger automobile, van or pickup truck whose primary purpose is to transport passengers for non-commercial purposes. No permit shall be issued for any truck, trailer, van or pickup truck whose primary purpose is commercial in nature, passenger trailer, motor home, house car, camper, boat, boat trailer, commercially licensed vehicle, other than a van or pickup truck whose primary purpose is to transport passengers for non-commercial purposes, or any other vehicle, except as provided herein.

(B) In the case of a van or pickup truck, the applicant shall sign a declaration, under penalty of perjury, stating that the primary use of the vehicle is the non-commercial transportation of passengers.

As an example, you cannot purchase a temporary overnight parking permit for a motor home or any vehicle that primarily has a commercial purpose. Because temporary permits do not apply to these vehicles, motor homes are not allowed to park overnight. Placing a temporary permit on the prohibited vehicle will not prevent it from being issued a parking ticket between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m.

If you have any questions, you may contact me at 626.308.2860.
