Permit parking restrictions to expand around Silver Lake Boulevard

New parking restrictions will apply to the east side of Silver Lake Boulevard

Silver Lake — Driving to the shops and restaurants along Silver Lake Boulevard or the dog park next to the reservoir?  Then make sure you are aware of some new parking restrictions that will soon be put in place.

Permit parking areas have been approved for the east side of the boulevard and some nearby residential streets – matching the parking restrictions to the west.

The City Council approved a proposal by Councilman Mitch O’Farrell to impose the new restrictions aimed at visitors. The restrictions include a two-hour parking time limit between 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.  and no parking from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m.  — except for residents with preferential parking permits.

The report by the Department of Transportation noted that parking in that area has been strained by a proximity to three existing permit parking districts, a recreation center and a popular dog park, as well as businesses and their employees on Silver Lake Boulevard.

Here are where the new permit parking restrictions will be put in place:

  • East side of Silver Lake Boulevard between Berkeley Avenue (west intersection) to Effie Street
  • East side of Silver Lake Boulevard between Effie Street to Duane Street (Overnight Parking District (OPD) No. 553 boundary)
  • Easterly Terrace between Occidental Boulevard and Silver Lake Boulevard
  • Fanning Street between Silverwood Terrace and Silver Lake Boulevard

City Hall is also looking at preventing RVs and other large vehicles from parking overnight on several streets on the south end of Silver Lake.

  1. Why not just install parking meters? South of Effie, just get rid of street parking altogether and give the 201 dedicated lanes.

    • There should be no “street parking” on any street that carries a high frequency buses… that being said, the 201 comes like 5 times a day.. I guess I could see the bus lane being more practical if the bus was more frequent (and I wish it was more frequent, I take it to work!)

  2. So much for supporting the businesses of SLB.

  3. I tried to park near the Black Cat the other night and there were 4 cars parked on 2 blocks of Hyperion for permit parking only. Nothing but parking spots and no cars to put there.
