Street Sweeping

03/29/21 Update:  The City will resume enforcement for street sweeping parking violations beginning June 21, 2021. Street sweeping parking enforcement was paused to accommodate residents on March 17, 2020 due to the pandemic.  As Regional Stay at Home Orders were lifted, enforcement will resume on designated street sweeping maintenance days to ensure street gutters can be properly cleaned, reduce pollution entering the storm drains, and keep our City clean. Residents are reminded to refer to the street sign on their block for the days and times of parking restrictions, and move their vehicles accordingly to avoid receiving a citation beginning this summer. We’ll leave flyers on unmoved vehicles as a courtesy during late May and early June, so please don’t mistake these notices as parking tickets. To avoid a ticket on future street sweeping days, make sure to move your car according to posted restrictions, beginning June 21, 2021. Thank you!

 

2021 Street Sweeping Holiday Schedule

The City Street Sweeping program maintains the roughly 480 centerline miles of City streets removing more than 45 tons per week of debris, trash, and other harmful constituents that would otherwise pollute the environment. For example, over 1200 gallons of oil are recovered from street sweeping debris every year! Areas of the City are swept every weekday, to once a month according to their use.

The main emphasis of the street sweeping program is to keep the storm drain conveyance system free of material that could possibly clog and cause flooding during a rain event. Secondly is the protection of the environment. Lastly, the result is the positive aesthetic enhancement that a freshly swept street creates.

To allow the program to meet its goal of sweeping the street, enforcement signs are posted in all residential areas for bi-weekly periods in which they are swept. Check the signs on your street for your day/time of sweep. For a map of streets and their days/times of enforcement, click here.  Street Sweeping Zone Map  (724 KB)
