Hermosa Beach will begin enforcement of its 2019-2020 residential parking permits at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, March 20. The 2018-2019 residential parking permits expired Feb. 28, but the city delays enforcement of the new permit requirement to give residents and employees time to secure the new permits.
Residents and employees who have not yet ordered a permit may still apply for the new permits by mail or online at hermosabch.org/index.aspx?page=895.
Over-the-counter sales are available at City Hall, located at 1315 Valley Drive, Room 101, Monday through Thursday, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
To renew a residential permit, residents need the renewal postcard from the city and a valid ID or current proof of residency, such as a utility bill, that is dated in the last 30 days. Residential permits cost $40.
Employees who work in “impacted areas” of Hermosa Beach may purchase an employee parking permit at City Hall if they provide a valid ID, vehicle registration and a current pay stub indicating they work in Hermosa Beach. Those permits cost $143.
Residential and employee parking permits are available to those who live and work in the “impacted area.” The impacted area is within the city’s north and south boundaries from the Strand on the west side and Loma Drive, Park Avenue or Morningside Drive on the east side. Also included is the east and west side of Cypress Avenue between 11th Street and Pier Avenue.
A permit exempts the vehicle from the one-hour parking restrictions in residential areas and allows free parking at 24-hour street meters (designated with yellow poles/yellow meter caps). The permits are not valid in the two-hour and three-hour parking zones. Permit holders still must comply with street sweeping restrictions and state law limiting parking to 72 hours.
