FAIR WARNING: PLACING OBSTRUCTIONS IN PUBLIC RIGHTS-OF-WAY WITHOUT AN ENCROACHMENT PERMIT IS ILLEGAL
As we move toward June 15, the start of the City's paid parking program for public parking lots located on either side of Ocean Boulevard, some property owners on residential side streets are installing shrubs, fences, and other obstacles in public rights-of-way in an effort to prevent people from parking there. This is illegal without an encroachment permit from the City.
For those who do park in public rights-of-way, keep all four tires off the pavement and do not litter. Observe required distances from intersections and Stop signs. Do not block driveways. Do not park on sidewalks. Keep a proper distance from fire hydrants.
