Traffic, Parking & Transportation

The Traffic, Parking and Transportation Department oversees pub­lic parking and traffic operations in the city and actively promotes walking, bicycling and transit. Public parking includes promulgat­ing, signing and enforcing parking regulations; installation and maintenance of parking meters; operation of the City’s two parking garages; collection and adjudication of parking tickets; and opera­tion of the Resident Permit Program.

Traffic operations include pavement markings, including crosswalks and bicycle lanes; oper­ation of traffic signals; traffic study reviews; and permitting street obstructions and street closings.  The department also works closely with other City departments in planning, reviewing and developing proposals to improve the City’s infrastructure and encourages walking, bicy­cling and using transit.
