Meters may be bagged with "No Parking" bags over the meter heads to keep the street clear of parked cars for construction, special events and filming. Please note, a street occupancy permit must also be obtained for any event that takes place in the street/sidewalks/public right of way.

Note:  Meter bagging requests take up to 72 hours to process, so should be submitted at least 1 week before your event.
