Several Stanton neighborhoods have opted-in to the City's Residential Permit Parking program. Guidelines, adopted by Stanton City Council, are summarized below:
- Only certain neighborhoods have elected to be part of the Permit Parking Program.
- There are Parking Districts and Parking Zones.
- Parking Districts are large block areas that are generally bounded by major streets.
- Parking Zones are areas within the Districts that residents may vote to establish a new permit parking area. Current areas of permit parking are Parking Zones. Multiple Parking Zones may exist within a District, and a parking permit may be used in any zone within the District.
- In accordance with the California Attorney General's recommendations, multi-family properties, such as condos or apartments, can now be included in the permit parking program. Applications for new parking permit zones are available at the Public Works counter and the fee is $660 to begin the process. 75% of residents must vote to approve a new parking zone or to remove an existing parking zone. The process is detailed in the Guidelines.
