Residential Parking Permit Pilot Program

At the August 20, 2019 meeting of the Corte Madera Town Council, the Council implemented a Residential Parking Permit pilot program in the northern portion of the Madera Gardens neighborhood during the 2019-2020 school year.  The purpose of this program is to prevent Redwood High School (RHS) students from using residential streets in these neighborhoods to access the high school.  For the pilot year:
  • On-street parking will be restricted to vehicles with residential parking permits from 7am to 3pm (RHS hours of instruction)
  • All vehicles registered to properties on the affected streets will be eligible for permits that allow them to be parked on the street
  • Limited-term guest parking permits will be available from Town Hall 
  • Landscape maintenance companies, licensed contractors, and other businesses that visit residences may park on the restricted streets provided they display a valid business license from the Town of Corte Madera in their vehicle.
The Town and Central Marin Police Authority (CMPA) will be using Code Enforcement Officers and CMPA staff to periodically patrol the residential parking permit area.  Residents will also be able to call CMPA when there is a problem.
Street signs indicating on-street residential parking permit requirements during RHS hours of instruction will be erected, consistent with the permit area boundaries: Apache Road, Navajo Lane, Cheyenne Way, Arrowhead Lane, and portions of Birch Avenue and Lakeside Drive.
