Steps for implementing a Neighborhood Parking Permit Program on residential streets within Orange:

  • Parking Permit areas are implemented on a block-by-block basis.
  • The candidate street(s) must be impacted by either an institutional or commercial use.
  • The proponent submits a written letter of request and an application fee of $525.00 for consideration of the implementation of permit parking on the candidate street(s).
  • Upon receipt of the letter of request and the application fee the Traffic Engineering staff creates a petition that covers all the addresses on the affected street(s) and mails it to the proponent.
  • The proponent circulates the petition through the neighborhood and returns it to the Traffic Engineering Division within 45 days.
  • There must be a minimum majority of 55% of residents in favor of the proposed parking permit program in order for the request to receive a favorable recommendation by the Traffic Engineering Division.
  • The Traffic Engineering Division assigns the issue to the first available Traffic Commission Agenda.
  • All addresses on the petition will be notified of the Traffic Commission Meeting about 10 days prior to the meeting.
  • If the Traffic Commission approves the request it is then forwarded to the City Council for final approval.The affected street(s) are added to the City’s Permit Parking Resolution.
  • Residents are notified as to where they can pick up their permits and when the Police Department will begin its enforcement.
  • The number of permits issued to each household is based on housing density and is determined by the Police Department.
