As it did for Halloween, the City is implementing temporary restrictions for on-street parking during Deltopia — the annual spring party planned by students in Isla Vista. Each household in the affected neighborhoods will be issued two permits for residents to park on the street during Deltopia. Residents are encouraged to park in their garages or driveways as well. Only vehicles with valid permits will be able to park on the streets in this area from 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 4 through 6 a.m. Sunday, April 5. (Should Deltopia move to the following weekend, the restrictions will be in place from 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 11 through 6 a.m. Sunday, April 12.) Vehicles without permits will be cited and towed at the owner’s expense.
What area does this program cover? Hollister Avenue to the southern City limit (Whittier Drive), from Cannon Green Drive to Storke Road.
How do I get my permit? Permits will be delivered via U.S. mail before March 30. If you do not receive yours, please contact our Neighborhood Services Department at 961-7556 to make arrangements for a replacement.
Is there a permit fee? No.
What should I do with the permit once I receive it? Each permit has an address and permit number. Write in the license plate number of the vehicle you plan to park on the street. Tape the permit to the inside of the driver’s side window by 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 4.
I have more than two vehicles that need to be parked on the street. Can I obtain another permit? Yes. Please contact our Neighborhood Services Department at 961-7556 prior to noon on April 3 to make arrangements.
Will access to my neighborhood be restricted? Message boards will be placed at major intersections with entrances to the permit parking area. Law enforcement officers and tow trucks will be visible during the weekend as these parking restrictions are enforced. However no road access will be restricted.
I have a guest coming into town during this weekend, can they be issued a permit? No. This program is for our residents-only. Your guest can park in your driveway and you can use a permit to park your vehicle on the street.
My child has an activity at Girsh Park over the weekend, where should I park? Over 2750 parking spaces are available in the Girsh parking lots and at Camino Real Marketplace. Please use one of these spaces to avoid having your vehicle towed on Saturday.
A vehicle is parked on my street without a permit, who should I call? Please call 9-1-1 and the dispatcher will take the information and route it to a deputy for action.
What if the Deltopia event is moved to the following weekend? If it moves, the restrictions will be in place from 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 11 through 6 a.m. Sunday, April 12.
