Parking Overnight on Claremont Streets Is Prohibited
Section 10.32.210 of the Claremont Municipal Code prohibits parking any vehicle on a City street for more than one hour between the hours of 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. Please note, trailers, whether attached to another vehicle or not, will be treated as a distinct and separate vehicle. There are a variety of reasons for the ordinance, but some major considerations are:
Obtaining an Overnight Parking (ONP) Exemption
If you have to park on the street between the hours of 2 a.m. and 6 a.m., you can apply for an ONP Exemption up to 60 days in advance. Each household is entitled to 3 ONP Exemptions (3 nights) per vehicle, per month. A trailer, whether attached to another vehicle or not, requires its own exemption. There are two ways to apply for an exemption:
To cancel or modify a previously-entered exemption date, enter license plate number below and follow the steps of the online exemption application form. You can then select a new exemption date using the dropdown menu on this same page. Exemption cancellations will only be accepted prior to 2 a.m. on the morning of the exemption date.
Although there is no allowance for a permanent ONP exemption, you may apply for an Extended Overnight Parking Exemption. This is for long term or extended exemptions for driveway construction, etc. A written request must be submitted to the police department. An inspection of the property may be conducted to confirm the need for an exemption. Extended ONP requests will not be accepted online or by mail and must be turned in by person to be processed. After a review of your application, you will be notified by police department personnel if the exemption is granted
When applying for an Overnight Parking Exemption, please select the date when your vehicle will be parked on the street between 2:00 A.M and 6:00 A.M. (Remember the date changes at midnight)
