How does this affect parking enforcement?
Parking officers will no longer “chalk” tires to enforce time zone parking. The use of LPR technology allows parking officers to enforce parking regulations more quickly and efficiently, which should result in more parking spaces being available for downtown customers, residents and visitors.

How does this affect citation appeals and payment?

The new technology interfaces with an online portal, which means parking citation appeals and payment can be done online at: .


Parking Citation Appeals

You may initiate a Parking Citation Review Request if you believe that your violation did not occur, or that extenuating circumstances existed to warrant the dismissal of the citation.

Generally, parking citations are not dismissed for claims of the following:

  • Lack of intent to violate the law.
  • Shortage of parking spaces, on public or private property.
  • (Illegal) use of parking space inconvenienced no one, even if usage was short in duration. 
  • Running late for an appointment, work, class, etc.
  • Unable to leave work, class, etc., to move vehicle in a timed zone.
  • Failure to see properly posted parking signage or painted curbs.
  • Failure to purchase (or renew, upon expiration) City parking permits.
  • Financial hardship (the City does not reduce fines or offer community service in lieu of paying fines). 

  • IMPORTANT INFORMATION: If you are submitting a Parking Citation Appeal, do not send in payment at this time. During the appeal process, all payment due dates are temporarily placed on hold pending the outcome of the review. Late charges will not be applied during this time.
