Rain and holidays are the two main reasons why street sweeping (sweeping) may be cancelled. Parking enforcement in the sweeping, no-parking zones are also cancelled.
An announcement of sweeping cancelations is made on the Street Sweeping Hotline (805-897-1903). Parking enforcement during the times posted in sweeping zones is also cancelled for the rest of that day.
Sweeping will resume on the next regularly scheduled day and time. There is no automatic schedule shift to the next day.
Street sweeping is usually cancelled when runoff fills the gutters. Steady rain, not just showers, is needed to warrant cancellation. Please do not assume that any rain results in automatic cancellation; check the Hotline before you park!
Please view the 2022 Holiday Sweeping Cancellations Calendar above. A message will be placed on the Street Sweeping hotline announcing the scheduled holiday sweeping cancelation and reminding callers that parking enforcement in sweeping zones will be cancelled on those days.
