ECHO PARK — More Echo Park streets might be getting permit parking. The Los Angeles Department of Transportation is recommending that overnight parking be prohibited on several streets east of Glendale Boulevard unless motorists have the required permits.
The proposal to create of the neighborhood’s newest Preferential Parking District has been in the works since 2014 after residents complained about sharing limited street parking with the patrons and visitors of businesses along Glendale. In addition, there was concern that a small-lot townhouse project, now under construction on Lake Shore Avenue, would attract more traffic to the area and reduce the amount of parking spaces to create driveways, according to letter from Councilman Mitch O’Farrell to the department of transportation.
If the City Council approves this parking district (see map below), only residents or their guests who purchase the necessary permits would be able to park on sections of Liberty Street, Scott Avenue, Berkeley Avenue and Lake Shore Avenue between 6 p.m. and 8 a.m. Those without a permit could get slapped with a $68 ticket.
In recent years, permit parking restrictions have been imposed on several Echo Park streets, primarily those located off of Sunset Boulevard.
Permit Parking Costs:
Annual Permit: $34 (three per household)
Visitor Permit: $22.50 for four months (two per household)
One-Day Guest Permit: $2.50
Cost of Violation: $68
