The City of South Lake Tahoe announces the launch of a new Residential Parking Permit Program in portions of the Heavenly Valley neighborhood. This initiative aims to address and reduce the parking-related challenges faced by residents and visitors during the winter season. The Heavenly Valley neighborhood has experienced increased congestion and parking impacts during winter months. To address these issues and enhance the quality of life for residents, the City has introduced a Residential Parking Permit Program in the Heavenly Valley area.
Key features of the program include:
Seasonal No Parking Zones: Additional zones where parking is prohibited between November 1 to May 1 have been added to ensure parking on only one side of a street or, where streets are narrow, no parking on either side.
Seasonal Resident Permit Zones: Specific areas have been designated for Resident Parking only. These areas will be reserved for residents in the program area with valid parking permits during the winter season. Residents will be required to obtain parking permits from the South Lake Tahoe Police Department and display the permit in vehicles parked in these zones.
The program prioritizes the needs of local residents. Residents living in the designated zones can apply for parking permits, ensuring they have access to convenient parking near their homes. The City Police Department will monitor compliance with the program. Unauthorized vehicles parked in No Parking Zones or in Resident Permit Zones without permits will be subject to $300 fines. Visitors to the area will be encouraged to utilize designated parking facilities, transit, and micro-transit options to minimize congestion in the residential neighborhoods.
On-street parking prohibition during snow removal conditions that apply citywide will continue to apply in these areas.
