Connecting and Informing Neighbors


​​Downtown Parking Increase

The city is planning to increase parking lot fees, regulations, and restrictions. The fee increases include a hike from $1 to $1.50 an hour for meters  and a new rate of $5 an hour to $15 per day in parking lots during the summer. This will make Oceanside more in line with other jurisdictions as fees have not been increased since 2010 for meters or since 2011 in lots. In addition overnight parking for oversized vehicles and unattached trailers will be prohibited in the harbor area.  A permit for overnight camping three nights a month still will be available.
