WeHo residents are getting notices at their doors that the City of West Hollywood will resume WeHo parking enforcement following the recent lifting of the State Regional Stay at Home Order. The following parking regulations will be enforced beginning Monday, February 1, 2021:
  • Permit parking enforcement on all residential streets
  • Street sweeping enforcement
  • AM/PM peak hour enforcement on Fountain Avenue.

In addition, starting on Monday, February 1, 2021, visitor permits will no longer be available at the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station. Visitor permits may be acquired at the Kings Road Parking Garage or online through the City’s Permit-by-Plate self-service portal.

Contact the Parking Violations Bureau at (800) 687-2458 with all citation related questions. Details are available at www.weho.org/parking.

West Hollywood Visitor parking permits began its ‘Permit-by-Plate’ technology on Monday, January 4, 2021. Residents are now able to skip a trip to the parking office at the Kings Road Garage and obtain visitor parking permits online.

The City’s Parking Services Division added new convenience to the process of applying for visitor parking permits, which allow guests to park near a West Hollywood resident’s home within a preferential parking district.

Preferential parking districts are residential areas with streets or boundaries where parking restrictions require vehicles to display a valid permit to park during certain hours. Visitor parking permits are valid for a one-day period and can be registered up to five days in advance using a vehicle’s license plate.Residents who prefer to register and pick-up visitor parking hangtags in person at the Kings Road Garage may still do so—however, once an account is set-up and a resident orders visitor permits electronically, they will no longer be able to obtain paper permits.

Hangtag permits will no longer be issued at the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station effective Monday, February 1, 2021. WeHo parking enforcement officers will use license plate reader technology via cameras mounted on enforcement vehicles to scan plates to determine whether parked cars have the appropriate permit on file. Handheld devices carried by parking enforcement officers will also have the capability of validating a license plate. This new process eliminates the need for physical visitor parking permit hangtags. Visitor parking permits are issued free of charge and are intended for residents to accommodate friends, relatives, and guests for specific and occasional events.West Hollywood residents will be able to use the new Permit-by-Plate program by visiting www.weho.org/parking from a computer or mobile device and clicking on the visitor parking permit link.

Users will be redirected to a web-based application process and will be asked to provide a West Hollywood street address to be verified for permit eligibility. This verification process will require an uploaded image or PDF document with proof of residency, such as an identification card, driver license, property tax bill, signed rental lease, or utility bill.Once approved, residents can manage visitor parking permits using the self-service web area to request additional permits, assign vehicles to permits, and review available visitor permit points.

The Permit-by-Plate process is being implemented to supplement to the existing process of in-person permit registration and online process for permit renewals.
