REMINDER: PARKING IS RESTRICTED ON MILLER AVENUE
City staff will post notices to indicate that curbside parking in both directions will be restricted on Miller Avenue from Millwood to Willow Street.
In August 2019, the City Council unanimously accepted the recommendation of Public Safety Officials to implement the restrictions on parking on days of extreme fire hazard, also known as Red Flag days. Parking is restricted on Miller Avenue on Red Flag Days because Miller Avenue is designated as a primary evacuation route. The aim of the restrictions is to aid in both evacuation and firefighting efforts in the event of an emergency. Learn more about evacuation preparedness.
Mill Valley staff will use temporary barricades to indicate the parking restrictions until permanent signs are in place and permits issued.
Questions may be directed to the Mill Valley Police Department at 415-389-4100 or email email@example.com.
