Dear COVID-19 Street Parking Relief Permit Recipient,
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the City of Long Beach and its residents, with much uncertainty over how long it will continue. Therefore, the Long Beach City Council has approved extension of the COVID-19 Parking Relief Program for residents with existing permits in parking-impacted neighborhoods. This temporary permit program was created to mitigate parking impacts caused by COVID-19, and will now run through at least the end of 2020 in the locations listed below. At the end of the extension period, the City will reevaluate and provide users with advanced notice regarding expiration or further extensions.
Additionally, the City of Long Beach is continuing increased courtesy parking time for on-street parking meters. All on-street parking meters allow for 15 minutes of free parking to accommodate curbside pick-up from local restaurants and businesses, while still keeping parking meters in effect to allow for turnover of spaces serving essential businesses. To claim the free 15 minutes of parking, residents can press the green button on the parking meter.
