Adding Residential Permit Parking Restrictions
On-street permit parking in Santa Barbara is governed by Chapter 10.46 of the City’s Municipal Code. Permit parking restrictions may only be posted on streets located within a designated Permit Parking Area (PPA). There are currently nine designated PPAs in the City – one in the West Beach area, one on the Mesa, one in the Las Positas/Modoc area, and six in the Downtown area.
The Resident Permit Parking (RPP) program is entirely resident-driven. Residents of a neighborhood must work together to initiate the implementation of parking restrictions on their block and demonstrate their desire for the City to regulate parking on their streets.
