How do I find about street sweeping schedule?

Street Sweeping Schedule


I want to report an abandoned vehicle.

If the vehicle is located on private property, your complaint can be submitted to the Code Enforcement Division. If the vehicle is located on a public street, please contact the Parking Enforcement Division at 760-435-5195.

Where are the rules about parking in the City?

Vehicles and trailers parked on private property are generally regulated by the Oceanside Zoning Ordinance, Oceanside City Code, and Oceanside Traffic Code and enforced by the City’s Code Enforcement Division. For most residential properties, vehicles may not be parked on the front yard or in the parkway (area between the curb and private property). Vehicles may be parked in side or rear yards under certain circumstances such as when parked on a hard surface meeting driveway standards and behind a 6 foot high, view-obscuring fence.
