Temporary No Parking signs are issued for areas where there are no parking meters, for a number of purposes:

  • to accommodate large moving trucks or oversized vehicles 
  • to facilitate construction or other utility work on property, in the street or adjacent to the street
  • to accommodate weddings or funerals
Signs for weddings and funerals are provided at no charge per city ordinance.
  • to prohibit parking for block parties, races, or parades.
If No Parking signs are to be used as part of a block party, race, or parade, a Street Use Permit or Parade Permit must be obtained in advance. If construction is to occur, and depending on the type, a Street Occupancy Permit may be required.


Meter Signs are reviewed and issued for each request.

  • Temporary No Parking Signs cost $2.00 per sign.
