The City of Duarte is offering its residents two convenient options to purchase temporary parking permits: a City Hall kiosk location and a “way to park” phone app.
The kiosk is located in front of City Hall allowing 24-hours per day, walk-up access for residents.
The “way to park” phone app allows residents to access a permit from virtually anywhere a “smart” phone can access the web (iOS and Android accessible). The resident or customer will pay for the permit and enter their license plate. Users will NOT be issued a physical permit as their license plate information will be stored in the system database for use by parking enforcement.
In conjunction with the launching of these two features, the City AccessDuarte.com website also features a page explaining both options located on its homepage by clicking on the parking permit icon. With these new methods, no longer will residents have to display a permit in their windshields eliminating citations issued in error as well as counterfeit permits.
For additional information on the new parking permit programs, contact Duarte Public Safety at (626) 357-7938.
Duarte Mayor Margaret Finlay and Unified School District President Reyna Diaz will update the community at the annual State of the City and School District, a Duarte Chamber-sponsored reception at the City of Duarte Community Center and Courtyard on Tuesday, March 21, beginning at 5:30 p.m.
