Streets where overnight parking would be banned without a permit.

Silver Lake  — Parking overnight on a few streets near the 101 Freeway and Hoover Street would be allowed only to residents who purchase the required permits under a proposal now making its way through City Hall.

The overnight parking restrictions are being considered in response to deal with criminal problems and homeless persons sleeping in cars, according to city documents. It’s not clear, however, what criminal problems are being targeted by the overnight restrictions.

The 2 am to 6 am parking ban would be applied to a few streets near the 101 Freeway and Hoover Street:

  • Plata Street between Hoover Street and Micheltorena Street
  • John Street between Hoover Street and dead end east of Hoover Street
  • Micheltorena Street between Plata Street and London Street
  • Hoover Street between Temple Street and London Street
  • London Street between Hoover Street to Micheltorena Street

Residents who purchase the $15 annual parking permit would be able to park overnight without being cited. The fine is $68.

The restrictions were initially proposed by the office of Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell and are being recommended by the Department of Transportation.

The proposal is scheduled to be reviewed by the City Council’s Transportation Committee later this week before going to the full City Council for a vote.
