CITY TO ESTABLISH PARKING RESTRICTIONS

IN SALT LAKE FOR STREET CLEANING

 

The City’s Department of Facility Maintenance will be restricting parking on five streets in Salt Lake to enable street-sweepers to clean areas that are usually blocked by parked cars.

 

The streets are Ala Ilima Street, Ala Lilikoi Street, Ala Nanala Street, Ala Nanu Street, and Likini Street, from Ala Napunani Street to Ala Lilikoi Street.

 

Parking will be restricted on alternating sides of each street every Thursday and Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.  The restrictions begin this August 2 and 3.  The City will be posting signs alerting residents of this policy beginning July 30.

 

Cars parked in the restricted zones during those times will be cited for illegal parking.  Private refuse companies will be required to move their dumpsters during the cleaning hours. 

 

Laverne Higa, director and chief engineer of the Department of Facility Maintenance, said, “Federal regulations have become increasingly strict to reduce the pollution washing down our storm drains and into our streams and ocean.  In order to comply with these federal mandates, and avoid stiff penalties, we must have access to the curbs, where most of the soil and trash accumulates, in order to adequately clean them.

 

“Unfortunately, in a heavily populated area like Salt Lake, the number of cars parked on the streets makes cleaning difficult.  That’s why we’ve had to resort to this policy.  We’re asking for the public’s cooperation and understanding, particularly during the initial phase of this program.  The end result will be cleaner streets and a cleaner environment for all.”

 

A map designating the parking restrictions is attached.
