REDLANDS, Calif. — Drivers could soon be ticketed for not following posted parking times in Downtown Redlands.

The city of Redlands announced that enforcement of posted public parking times will begin on Monday, March 18.

Drivers will be granted a two-week grace period. Full enforcement is slated to begin in April, stated city spokesperson Ross Whittman in a press release Thursday. First-time offenders will receive a warning. However, subsequent violations within six months will result in citations.

Parking will be monitored Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., excluding weekends and holidays.

Parking enforcement was a key recommendation from the 2023 Downtown Redlands Parking Study. The study revealed a significant demand for on-street parking, particularly around State Street, compared to nearby lots and parking structures. Implementing timed parking zones seeks to ease congestion and guarantee equitable access to these coveted spots in the downtown area.

In an effort to help residents find convenient downtown parking, the city released a map of free public parking in the downtown here.
