Community Parking Program
Uptown Triangle

The Uptown Triangle was one of the first neighborhoods to work with SDOT to improve on-street parking management through the Community Parking Program.

Beginning in April 2008, SDOT staff met with community organizations, held conversations with individual property owners, residents, and businesses, and conducted an  on-street parking study. The input from all of these sources was used to design new parking regulations for much of the Uptown Triangle neighborhood.

Beginning in October 2008, pay station kiosks replaced all parking meters and improved customer convenience by accepting debit and credit cards, as well as coins. Additional on-street parking changes can be seen on this map and included:

  • Converting free parking to a combination of 2-hr and 10-hr pay stations throughout the area
  • Converting free load zones to paid load zones
  • Converting truck load zones to 30-minute paid commercial vehicle zones

A letter describing the changes was sent to all Uptown Triangle property owners, businesses, and residents the week of September 8, 2008.
