The City 's Community Parking District (CPD) Program was established through City Council Policy #100-18 to help bring parking management solutions to the City's neighborhoods most adversely impacted by parking. City staff closely collaborates with community members through five CPDs to customize solutions to their area's specific needs.
The City's five designated Community Parking Districts are Downtown, Mid-City, Old Town, Pacific Beach and Uptown.
A portion of the revenue from parking meters within these districts may be used to implement solutions such as parking lots, parking structures, valet parking, parking/transportation signage and related extraordinary landscaping and maintenance.
In 1997, the City established the Parking Meter District Program, which was, in 2004, updated and renamed the Community Parking District Program.
