During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the City suspended enforcement of street sweeping. However, street sweeping enforcement resumed on Monday, July 6, 2020. Find out more at www.lake-elsinore.org/coronavirus.
The City of Lake Elsinore sweeps all residential streets twice each month. Major arterial streets and commercial areas are swept once each week. All entrances to residential housing tracts have been posted with no parking signs on the day of street sweeping. Our posted signs meet the requirements set forth in the California Vehicle Code.
Code Enforcement will issue tickets to cars parked on the streets of neighborhoods identified on the marked “No Parking” signs for the scheduled street sweeping days. Cars parked on the street force the sweeper to miss some areas of the curb when the street is swept. The most desirable solution is to have residents know when their assigned day is for sweeping and avoid parking on the street on those days. Neighbors can help by observing posted temporary no parking days and working together to pass the information throughout the neighborhood by word of mouth, especially to new neighbors.
