Los Angeles County Firefighters responded to the June 20, 2016 Fish Fire. Burned and denuded hillsides now have Duarte officials planning for the possibilities of mudslides.

New parking rules are on the way. Duarte will take to social media during rainstorms this winter to warn residents of the possibility of mudslides that could affect street parking.

A public hearing on a proposal for new parking rules in certain weather conditions will take place at the City Council meeting Tuesday. Parking restrictions would be imposed if officials determine there is a mudslide risk on streets near where the June 20 Fish Fire occurred.

Approximately 40 signs will be installed notifying residents of the parking rules.

“Under the ordinance, when the yellow or red alert is declared vehicles may be towed from designated streets at the owners’ expense,” a staff report notes. “Except in those emergency situations where immediate action is required, the city will give 24-hour notice to the owner of the vehicle by posting a notice on the vehicle and by posting notice on the city website, city Facebook page, city Twitter account, electronic message board, city email alerts and Nixle alerts.

Streets affected by the proposed restrictions include:

  • Greenback Avenue;
  • Conata Street;
  • Deerlane Drive;
  • Bettyhill Avenue;
  • Fieldview Avenue;
  • Mel Canyon Road;
  • Brookridge Road and
  • Mountain Crest Road.

The City Council meeting begins at 7 p.m. Duarte City Hall is located at 1600 Huntington Drive.
