The following information was submitted by the city of Bellevue:

A new parking regulation in Bellevue will continue to prohibit parking in the same public place for more than 24 hours but adds a requirement that vehicles must be moved to a different block. The new ordinance takes effect Tuesday, Dec. 26.

The revised code (BCC 11.23.020) closes a loophole that allowed drivers to move their vehicles a few inches to avoid a ticket. The change means that people cannot store a vehicle in the same place on the street for an extended period. The vehicle must be moved to a different block every 24 hours to avoid a ticket which will cost $42 beginning Monday, Jan. 1, up from $40.

Information on this and other parking regulations is available on the city’s parking rules and restrictions page. City code enforcement is complaint-based and can be filed using MyBellevue, the city’s online service request portal and mobile app, or by calling the NORCOM non-emergency line at 425-577-5656.
