If you have any questions regarding parking permits, you may contact the City of Stanton at (714) 890-4286.

Section 22507 of the California Vehicle Code allows cities to regulate parking of vehicles on certain streets by allowing the establishment of a preferential permit parking system to grant parking privileges to the residents adjacent to those designated streets.  The City of Stanton has adopted the following guidelines for the establishment of new permit parking areas.*

Parking Permit Program Alternatives:

  • 24-hour Parking Permit: On-street parking permits would be required 24 hours per day with the permit parking area.
  • Overnight Parking Permit: On-street parking permits would be required only for overnight parking within the permit parking area.

Making Your Request:
Residents who wish to request that a neighborhood be added to the program must first contact the Code Enforcement Division to discuss the proposed hours and boundaries of the proposed permit parking area.  Once the project boundaries and proposed hours are determined, the Code Enforcement Division will provide a petition that will need to be signed by not less than two-thirds (2/3) of the households within the proposed area. (Only one vote can be cast per household from either the property owner or tenant.)  If the submitted petition does not include the signatures of at least two-thirds (2/3) of the subject households, the petition fails to qualify.  The residents then must observe a minimum six (6) month waiting period to reapply.

City Council Action:
Following receipt and verification of two-thirds (2/3) positive vote signatures of residents’ petition a noticed public hearing will be scheduled for City Council consideration of request.  Upon closure of the public hearing, the City Council may adopt a resolution establishing the permit parking area. 

Following Council Adoption
Within sixty (60) days of City Council adoption, fifty percent (50%) of households within the permit parking area must register for parking permits.  If the fifty percent (50%) requirement is not met, the City Council approval shall automatically be deemed rescinded.  In the event of such a rescission, no new petition of the same, or substantially the same, area shall be accepted by the City for a minimum of six (6) months following the effective date of such rescission.
