Parking for Media Events

The city department hosting a "live shot," news conference or media event involving special parking needs will work with the media through the department's public information officer to establish a safe area to park.

Media not requiring the establishment of a "live shot" signal are advised to park at a meter or in a public parking garage; posted rates and parking laws are enforced.
