Parking Enforcement

KPD Parking Enforcement Jeep

Parking enforcement is not popular, but it is necessary. It's important for businesses to have parking available to customers. It is important to have access to sidewalks, since many people in town walk from place to place. And it's important to keep the streets clear so they can be cleaned at night. Parking enforcement is performed by KPD's Compliance Officers.

Common Violations

There are several common violations that are enforced, including:

  • Parking longer than 2 hours in designated areas.
  • Backing into a diagonal parking space. All diagonal spaces are head in only.
  • Parking in a front yard.
  • Parking downtown between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m.

More information about parking regulations can be found in City Ordinances Part 3, Title 7, Chapter 351

Parking Restrictions

The Kent City Ordinances list the parking restrictions on each street in the city. A comprehensive list of streets and their restrictions is listed in City Ordinances Part 3, Title 7, Chapter 353.
