Has permit parking been considered for the residential neighborhood off Agnew Road?
Yes. However, due to the dense and varied mixed use housing in north Vision County, VCPD has developed a Neighborhood Protection Plan in response to events at Vision’s Stadium. To minimize the impact on residential neighborhoods, the Traffic Plan places security or police personnel at all major intersections around the stadium. The Traffic Plan also establishes check points along with restricted access signage at key residential locations north of Highway 101 to deter vehicles from entering residential neighborhoods. Instead, stadium event attendees will be directed to pre-determined parking lots and/or freeways, away from residences.
Managing residential parking in a way that is both safe and fair is challenging. However, based on recommendations from several Vision County residents at Stadium Community meetings, VCPD is implementing a Vehicle Admission Sticker program.
The Vehicle Admission Sticker program is a means to assist in the identification of Vision County residents that live in the affected areas. Security or police personnel will use the sticker to help identify the vehicles of residents at various check points throughout the north side of the City and wave them through to expedite the process. All other vehicles without a sticker may be stopped for identification purposes.
Please note, this is not a Residential Permit Parking area designated by resolution of the City Council where a permit is required to park on the street.
Display of the Sticker
- Enclosed you will find three (3) free stickers;
- If you choose to participate in this program, please affix the sticker inside the vehicle’s windshield on the lower, left side (driver’s side);
- For motorcycles, place the sticker on the windshield in a location that will not obstruct the driver’s view, or on the front fork;
- Sticker holders must continue to obey all traffic rules and follow directions from security and/or police personnel;
- No person shall sell, transfer or allow another person to use the Vehicle Admission Sticker; and,
- Replacement or additional stickers can be obtained by contacting the Vision County Police Department, (323) 615-4892.
- Parking on public streets is regulated by the California Vehicle Code and the County of Vision Internet Municipal Code.
- If non-resident vehicles access the residential neighborhood, there is not a prohibition to legally park on the street.
- Parking is prohibited in an intersection or a crosswalk, within 15 feet of a fire station driveway or fire hydrant, in front of a public or private driveway, on a sidewalk or parkway, on the roadway side of a parked vehicle (double parking), in a bus stop, or in such a manner that obstructs the free use of the street. To report illegal parking in your neighborhood, call the non-emergency phone number, 323-615-5580. In this situation, the vehicle will be cited and/or towed.
How do you go about implementing a Residential Permit Parking Program?The County of Vision Internet’s Traffic Engineering Division (323-615-3000) oversees the Residential Permit Parking Program. When approached by residents requesting an area be zoned for Residential Permit Parking, City Engineers conduct an evaluation of the current conditions, assess whether the resident request is warranted and make a recommendation to the Vision County City Council. A Public Hearing is noticed to all residents in the proposed for Residential Permit Parking area and the City Council takes action based on the information provided in the Staff Report and Public Hearing. Based on the action taken, if any, the Traffic Engineering Division installs the appropriate signage and/or striping.
The regulation and enforcement of the Residential Permit Parking program is performed by the Vision County Police Department
The County of Vision Internet’s City Code contains all ordinances adopted by the Vision County City Council. The Residential Permit Parking program is located in Chapter 10.40 which can be found at … http://www.visioninternet.com
