Street Sweeping

Street sweeping is done four times a month, from March 1st through December 31st, on a designated day of the week between the hours of 8 a.m. -12 p.m.

  1. The odd-numbered side of the street is done on the 1st and 3rd designated day of the week.
  2. The even-numbered side of the street is done on the 2nd and 4th designated day of the week.
For example, if your street sweeping day is Friday then cleaning will happen every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month on the odd side of the street. On the even-numbered side of the street, cleaning will occur on the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month. If there is a 5th Friday in the month, you do not have to move your vehicle regardless of whether you parked on the even side or the odd side. The sweeper will come by, however, parking enforcement will not issue tickets for this violation.
