Some parking enforcement measures in Denver resume after COVID-19 break

Some parking enforcement activities resumed Monday in Denver, including the restart of parking meters downtown and elsewhere.

Parking enforcement in Denver was suspended in March because of COVID-19 concerns. Downtown-area parking meters are operational and will run from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., the according to a city news release said. Parking meters beyond downtown are also operational, and people should follow the posted price, limits and hours of operation.

Enforcement of time-limited, non-metered parking spaces and residential parking programs also resumes. Existing permit holders should renew expired permits, and residents eligible for residential parking permits should apply and check their status online at www.parksmartdenver.com, the release said. People unable to provide necessary permit documentation because of COVID-19 illness can pursue a 90-day temporary permit online.

Street sweeping enforcement in Denver will resume on July 1 as will enforcement of 72-hour parking limits.

Fire hydrant clearances and other safety zone measures remained in effect during the safe-at-home and safer-at-home guidelines. School bus loading zones will go back into enforcement when school resumes.

Vehicles towed because of street paving operations will be left in about a two-block radius of where the car was parked without a citation, according to the release. Residents who need help finding such vehicles can call (720) 913-2000 for assistance.
