Starting February 17, rates will change in the areas listed below to the amounts listed.

SDOT continues to set paid parking rates based on data and the SMC goal to achieve 1 to 2 open spaces per blockface.  This process will use updated data collected and analysis of the transactions to determine the levels of parking activity around the city, and make rate adjustments accordingly.
