Due to COVID-19 related issues, the South Pasadena Police Department has decided to extend overnight parking enforcement suspension until June 15.

The policy, which was initiated back on March 16 and originally set to expire Friday, May 15, only applies to overnight parking however. While many in town have been under the impression that daily and commercial street parking were part of the policy, SPPD Police Clerk Joe Ramirez stresses that in fact standard parking enforcement is still in effect. Only overnight parking is exempt in this case.

No where on the site does it explicitly state that daily parking is included in the policy.

According to the city’s parking enforcement portal, parking permits are still required for any vehicles that are parked for over 2 hours Monday-Friday. Weekends and holidays are free all day.

Though the website still lists options for purchasing overnight parking permits, clicking on the links themselves prompts a message stating, “Due to the coronavirus situation the City of South Pasadena is not enforcing overnight parking from 3/17/2020 trough 6/15/2020.”
