Parking enforcement resumes on Feb. 1

December 30, 2020

The City's overnight parking restrictions and enforcement will resume on Monday, February 1. City Code Enforcement staff will issue warnings for two weeks and will then begin issuing citations on Monday, February 15. This includes citations issued for vehicles parked on the street on street sweeping days. Permits are required to park on City streets between 3 and 5 a.m. to help keep streets clear and allow residents and deputies to quickly spot suspicious vehicles.

Overnight parking permit renewals for 2021 are taking place now. Residents can submit their annual parking permit application or request an overnight parking permit 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week, by visiting and clicking on "Parking Permits" under the Featured Links section.

The Cerritos City Council recently amended the parking permit criteria to allow two-car garage households with five vehicles and five licensed drivers to qualify for a second annual parking permit. Three-car garage households would require seven vehicles and seven licensed drivers to qualify for a second parking permit. The Council also temporarily allowed all Cerritos residents and students with a driver's license and vehicle to be issued a limited "Special Circumstance" parking permit that is valid for 90 days.
