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.
