Shared Parking Enforecment Update

Shared Parking Enforecment Update

The trial period for the City of West Sacramento/Sacramento parking enforcement partnership is coming to a close. Sacramento officers have been issuing warning citations in West Sacramento since 1/7/16. Beginning 2/8/16 real citations will be written for parking violations in the Washington and Bridge Districts, including City Hall and Community Center parking lots.

The partnership is part of a long-range plan to address West Sacramento’s future growth and manage increased parking demand West Sacramento will experience when the new Golden 1 Center is completed  later this year.

The City of West Sacramento has ultimate authority over the enforcement operations and citation processing. The cities will evenly split the fees generated from parking violations.
