UPDATE: Full City Council to hear proposal for the Valet Parking Permit Program on December 4th or 5th
A proposed program to better protect the consumer and regulate valet parking in Los Angeles made a quick stop in committee last week before members voted to send the item to the full City Council for discussion — as early as December.
The City Council’s Public Safety Committee heard the report on the proposed Valet Parking Permit Program, which could have a tremendous impact on dining and entertainment destinations in the 11th Council District.
“Valet Parking is an issue that continues to present challenges to communities and business operators all over the City,” said Councilmember Bill Rosendahl. “I hope that you can take the time to review the report and provide your input to the City Council – either in person or in writing.”
Rosendahl said this matter is tentatively scheduled to be heard
during the first two weeks of December December 4th or December 5th, 3rd Floor Council Chambers at City Hall, located at 200 North Spring Street, Los Angeles, 90012.
Linda Lucks, president of the Venice Neighborhood Council, said she heard about the proposal for the Valet Parking Permit Program from the Councilmember. Lucks suggest that all neighborhood councils should have the opportunity to weigh in from their positiions of leadership within the City.
“We all want an effective and needed ordinance to regulate valets,” said Lucks. “I believe those of us in communities with similar problems would like time to review the draft and add our voices to the proposed ordinance before it is passed and enacted, as it will affect all parts of the City.”
The Councilmember encourages all CD11 Neighborhood Councils and community groups to learn more about this issue and add the item to your Neighborhood Council agendas.

Meanwhile, Rosendahl said he will look to hear from his local Neighborhood Councils and business leaders first on how this will impact them before he will officially weigh in.
