Deltopia Resident-Only Temporary Permit Parking Program
The City of Goleta’s temporary parking restrictions program for on-street parking returns for Deltopia. This program is designed to enhance the safety of your neighborhood during the event. Each household in the affected neighborhoods (see map below) will be issued two permits for residents to park on the street during Deltopia. Residents are encouraged to park in their garages or driveways as well, where no permit is needed. Only vehicles with valid permits will be able to park on the streets in this area from 7:00 p.m. on Friday, April 5th to 7:00 a.m. Saturday, April 6th and 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 6th to 7:00 a.m. Sunday, April 7th. (Should Deltopia move to the following weekend, the restrictions will be in place from 7:00 p.m. on Friday, April 12th to 7:00 a.m. Saturday, April 13th and 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 13th to 7:00 a.m. Sunday, April 14th.)
Any vehicle, resident or guest, without a permit will be cited and towed at the vehicle owner’s expense. Cars parked in driveways do not require permits.
