Residential Parking Permit Program in Effect as Eureka High Students Head Back to School

Eureka, Ca. (KIEM) — Eureka High School students are back to school Monday after the holiday break, and with the new semester comes new parking restrictions.

The residential parking permit program in the area surrounding Eureka High School is now in effect. All residents receive free parking permits for each of their vehicles, along with two guest permits. The main areas affected are L and K Streets, and Del Norte, Humboldt, and Sonoma Streets.

Enforcement will be carried out primarily by a school resource officer who is already in the area. The enforcement period is Monday through Fridays from 8 am to 5 pm, or when school is in session.

Eureka Police understand that the changes are new, so they will be giving students and residents a little bit of a grace period to get adjusted, and will begin strict enforcement next week.

If you’d like to get more information on how you can start a parking permit program in your neighborhood, you can contact the transportation safety committee. They meet every second Tuesday of the month.
