When Parking Is Enforced

Parking is enforced Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

This applies only to public street parking, including the parking lots owned by the City, not private lots or garages. Regulations for red zones, handicapped zones, and permit parking zones never take a holiday.

The City of St. Helena has holiday parking starting Thanksgiving and ending New Year's Day. During this time, the parking is extended to 4 hours.

If you have a valid disabled person placard issued to you, you may park in the following locations: disabled person parking spaces, unpainted zones, or green zones without restrictions to time limits. You may not park in a red, bus zone, or any area crosshatched next to a disabled person parking space.

Disabled person placards should only be used by the registered person or the caregiver of the registered person when the registered person is being transported.

It is considered misuse to display the placard that has been canceled or revoked or to loan your placard to anyone, including family members. Misuse is a misdemeanor (section 4461 CVC) and can result in cancellation or revocation of the placard, parking privileges, and/or fines.

If you have questions about parking regulations, contact St. Helena Police Department at (707) 967-2850.
