Argyle Parking Initiative FAQ
There has been much controversy and confusion about the Argyle Parking Initiative, including stories on Curbed.com and on KCAL-9 television. Please click the FAQ above to read the full details!
The aim of our new parking initiative is to free up parking spaces in the neighborhood that are being used for long-term storage of automobiles and other vehicles.
City of Los Angeles regulations state that cars parked in the same parking spot for more than 72 hours can be ticketed and towed. The Argyle Civic Association will be helping the City enforce this regulation by reporting "abandoned" vehicles and freeing those spots for residents of the neighborhood.
Click the image above to view and download our informational postcard outlining the initiative.
In addition, we have created stickers for Argyle area residents that will help distinguish their vehicles from vehicles from outside the neighborhood. The stickers are free and completely voluntary. See the next column for more information.
NEW! Argyle Parking Stickers
Argyle Avenue area residents can now receive free vinyl stickers from the Argyle Civic Association. These stickers are entirely voluntary but will help ACA and our neighbors recognize your vehicle as local to the neighborhood. We hope that this will help discourage outsiders (office workers, club-goers, theater patrons, etc.) from parking here.
Pick your FREE sticker up at our next meeting at Castle Argyle, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
to make an email request to get a sticker.
PLEASE NOTE: Obtaining and using a sticker does not allow you to park in the No Parking zone on Upper Vine Street. The stickers are for vehicle identification only!
By City of Los Angeles regulations, cars may only be parked in one spot for 72 hours. Cars parked for more than 72 hours in the same parking spot can be ticketed and towed by the Dept. of Transportation. The Argyle Civic Association monitors the streets of our neighborhood for abandoned vehicles to keep parking spaces clear for neighborhood residents.
