COVID-19 Parking Relief Program Extension Update as of 09/16/2020Release Date: 2020-09-16
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 the end of 2020.
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 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.For more information, check out the Temporary COVID-19 Parking Relief Page.
