NAPA, CA — Amid coronavirus and the changes it brought to Downtown Napa businesses over the past several months, the city stopped enforcing its parking program because not many people were using time-limited parking spaces. But with activity picking back up, parking enforcement resumed Monday, the city announced.
The city is allowing a grace period through Friday, Sept. 18, during which time warning citations will be issued for short-term parking violations.
"We would like to thank all Downtown patrons, business owners, and employees for their continued voluntary compliance with the Downtown parking rules during the re-opening of our Downtown," city officials said in a news release.
Once the grace period is over, normal parking enforcement operations will resume.
Time-limited parking spaces are marked with a green curb and are conveniently located around the Downtown area for easy pickup of take-out orders or curbside pickup. With more restaurants offering take-out and outdoor dining, the city said Food Priority Pickup locations will remain in place as parking enforcement returns.
Information about Downtown Napa parking permits is posted on the city's website.
