The Huntington Beach City Municipal Code authorizes the Chief of Police to issue no-cost Recreational Vehicle parking permits providing the permits are obtained by a resident prior to the date and time the vehicle is parked. Recreational Vehicles are defined as: Recreational Vehicles over twenty (20) feet in length, boat trailers or personal watercraft trailers.
Parking permits are only valid on public streets or highways in a residential district. Permit holders are required to temporarily move their permitted vehicles on scheduled street sweeping dates and comply with the street sweeping ordinance. In addition, it is unlawful to sleep in a vehicle between the hours of 9 pm and 9 am (HBMC 9.54.010).
If you have any questions or comments, please contact the Huntington Beach Police Department/Traffic Bureau at 714 536-5663 Monday through Thursday, 8 am to 5 pm or refer to HBMC 10.44.062.
As a governmental agency, the city is governed by California's open records laws. It is important for you to understand that most business you conduct with the City of Huntington Beach, as well as with state and county governments, becomes a public record. Public records, as defined by state law, and not made confidential elsewhere in the California law, may be posted for electronic access through this website. This includes most city permits you have applied for, property you have registered with the county recorder of deeds, and requests for a city service. These same records have long been open for public inspection by anyone requesting them in person, by mail or by telephone at the appropriate government office. All information on this website is public information.
