Los Angeles Municipal Code (LAMC) 85.02 – Vehicle Dwelling:

This provisions of this ordinance expired (sunset provision). The LA City Council is reviewing the ordinance and how to regulate vehicle dwelling.

Effective Jan. 7, 2017 and sunset on July 1, 2018, the City Council approved an amendment to Municipal Code 85.02, which governs the use of vehicles for dwelling on city streets.The amended ordinance will allow for fines to be issued to persons dwelling in vehicles on residential streets and within one block (500 feet) of parks and licensed schools, preschools and day care facilities between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.; however, City of Los Angeles has created a series of maps to assist the public to identify streets where living in a vehicle would be allowed based on the underlying zoning and distancing from licensed schools, pre-schools, daycare facilities, and parks.

Safe Sidewalks LA:

The City of Los Angeles has made a historic commitment to invest $1.4 billion over 30 years to fix sidewalks around the city and make them accessible to everyone! These repairs will improve neighborhood safety and boost the quality of life. Sidewalk repairs are being made in front of city facilities and this next phase is an expansion of the repair program that will address broken sidewalks throughout the City of Los Angeles.

For more information on the programs and steps to get your sidewalk fixed in front of your home or business, CLICK HERE

Rebate Program:
 The Rebate Program is a limited-time offer for residents who are willing to pay for their own sidewalk repairs, then request a rebate for some or all of that cost. The purpose of the Rebate Program is to financially assist property owners who wish to voluntarily expedite the repair of their sidewalks to comply with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.

Owners of properties located within the City of Los Angeles are eligible to apply. Property ownership and taxpayer identification information will be verified. Upon eligibility determination, a City representative will assess the sidewalk and determine the rebate amount.

The rebate amount will be based on the work required to make the sidewalk ADA compliant. The maximum rebate amount is limited to $2,000 per Lot for residential properties, and $4,000 per Lot for commercial and industrial properties.

For more detailed information on the program, and to begin an application for the Rebate Program, please visit the Rebate Program page, or call 311.
