    FAQs

    Q: When did the Pilot Daytime Street Sweeping Program take effect?
    A: Beginning August 23, 2010, the street sweeping began on the second and fourth Mondays of every month.

    Q: What was the duration of the program?
    A: The Pilot program was tested for a period of 9 months, through May of 2011.  The program has been implemented.

    Q: What are the boundaries of the daytime street sweeping 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 daytime sweeping route (formerly pilot route) 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 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 evaluated that sweeping the streets in the Pilot area during designated daytime hours maximized 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) 744-7311.
