  • Pilot Daytime Street Sweeping Program


    Q: When is the Pilot Daytime Street Sweeping Program in effect?
    A: Beginning August 23, 2010, the streets will be swept on the second and fourth Mondays of every month.

    Q: What is the duration of the program?
    A: The Pilot program will be tested for a period of 9 months, through May of 2011.

    Q: What are the boundaries of the Pilot area?
    A: West – Fair Oaks Avenue
    North – Penn Street
    East – Los Robles Avenue
    South – Maple Street

    Q: What time will the sweeper go by?
    A: East and South sides of the streets (dwellings with even numbered house addresses) will be swept between the hours of 8:00 – 10:00 a.m.
    West and North sides of the streets (dwellings with odd numbered house addresses) will be swept between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon.

    Q: Will the streets be posted “No Parking”?
    A: Yes. Temporary signs will be posted throughout the area for the duration of the Pilot Program.

    Q: Will the pilot area still be swept at night in addition to the daytime sweeping?
    A: No. The pilot area will be swept only during the day on the second and fourth Mondays.

    Q: Will overnight parking restrictions still be in effect in the Pilot area?
    A: Yes. Residents who want to temporarily park their vehicles on the street between the hours of 2:00 – 6:00 a.m. must still purchase an overnight parking exemption.

    Q: What is the reason for the Pilot Daytime Street Sweeping Program?
    A: The City of Pasadena has undertaken efforts to improve the efficiency of street sweeping services. Although night-time sweeping services throughout the City enable the streets to be swept during the time when the least number of vehicles are parked on residential streets, there are some high-density areas of the City where large numbers of overnight parking permits have been granted and the parked vehicles prevent full cleaning of the area. The Pilot Program will evaluate whether sweeping the streets in the Pilot area during designated daytime hours maximizes the opportunity to fully clean the area while minimally impacting residents and visitors.

    Q: Can citizens provide feedback and/or call with specific questions?
    A: Yes. Please contact the Street Maintenance and Integrated Waste Management Division of the Department of Public Works at (626) 744-4087.
