New Parking Enforcement in Downtown Alameda
The City of Alameda officially launched its new parking enforcement service on May 23 with improved enforcement in the Park Street area. The program aims to increase compliance with parking rules to ensure spaces are available for visitors, crosswalks and bike lanes are clear, accessible parking zones are reserved for people with disability placards, street sweeping keeps debris out of our waterways, and more.
When people park their cars for more than 2 hours, double park, or park in a red zone, it makes parking difficult and our streets dangerous. Follow these tips to help ensure spaces are available, crosswalks and bike lanes are clear, and accessible parking zones are reserved for people with disability placards:
1) Don’t circle for parking. Instead, go straight to the Civic Center Parking Structure at 1416 Oak Street. Parking here is cheaper and more plentiful than on the street. And the elevator is fixed!
2) Watch for pedestrians at all times.
3) Park legally! Meters and time limits, when enforced, reduce congestion and can open up parking spaces for visitors wanting to shop and dine in our district.

As of June 3, all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, must wear face coverings again in most indoor public settings, based on the recent order from Alameda County health officials. Thank you in advance for remaining kind, supportive, and respective when shopping and dining in the district.
