Recent fallout from warnings and citations by LADOT parking enforcement has caused Oval residents in South Mar Vista to lobby Councilman Bill Rosendahl to introduce a motion to amend the LA Municipal Code to allow parking on driveway aprons that do not encroach on the sidewalk or the street.
A motion has also been passed by the Mar Vista Community Council Transportation and Infrastructure committee to send a support letter to the Councilman. This motion will be voted on by the full MVCC board on Tuesday August 9th at 7PM at the Mar Vista Park Recreation Center.

One thought on “Apron Parking Citations Sparks Controversy”
This past weekend was a disaster for some of us who live on East Boulevard, close to Washington Place. There was no parking available on Saturday or Sunday. I had to park on the north end of East Boulevard close to Venice, even though I live on the south end on Saturday – it was 3/4 of a block away. On Sunday I had the same problem – a combination of tenants from the apartment, multiple vehicles, and trash cans for Monday’s pick-up prevented me from parking close to our home. I changed parking positions twice when a space became available, because I had to pick up my husband from the airport late Sunday, and I didn’t want to walk in the dark to get my car. Safety is an important issue here.
The north oval needs to do something about parking. Not only should we be able to park on our aprons (that we maintain), but perhaps it’s time for permit parking.
