Yes, per Municipal Code Sec. 7-4-607, residents may request permit parking to be established in their community by petitioning the City. For more information, please call 949-362-4337.
Residents seeking to establish permit parking in their community, must first submit a letter requesting permit parking and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org. The City will then provide Resident with a petition form. Only a City provided petition form will be accepted for consideration of establishing a permit parking district.
The City will conduct several overnight parking studies over the course of 3-4 weeks to assess the need for permit parking in the petitioned community. These visits are typically between the hours of 12:00 AM and 3:00 AM when vehicles are parked for the night.
It typically takes a minimum of 3-4 months from the receipt of a petition, assessment of need, approval of implementation, to installing the permit parking signs.

Permit parking signage is installed at 300-foot intervals to provide enforceable notice. The installation locations for signs are pre-determined through the permit parking petition process. By signing the petition, Residents are made aware of and accept the sign installation locations. The City makes all efforts to install permit parking signage on existing posts or streetlights.
