The city will stop parking enforcement after 6 p.m., ending the City Council’s July decision to extend ticketing times until 8 p.m., city officials announced on Wednesday.
Oakland also increased meter rates and parking violation fines in July, both of which will remain in effect.
Oakland had projected an additional $1.3 million a year in revenue with the extension of parking meter enforcement times. The city projects a loss of roughly $1 million of that from the reversal of the policy.
The city anticipates offsetting the loss of that money by adding 250 parking meters citywide, opening a new garage for residential use at night, authorizing additional billboards, redirecting parking garage revenue to the General fund, selling advertising space on the back of parking receipts and increasing enforcement against the illegal use of disabled parking placards, according to a city release.
