Easter not a recognized city holiday in Long Beach, so feed those meters

Parking enforcement in the city of Long Beach follows an established schedule, as noted on meters throughout the city. Sunday, April 8 is not a legal holiday in Long Beach, and all parking meters will continued to be enforced.
Below is a list of holidays the City officially observes, but meters provide further information. Meters labeled “not enforced on holidays” do not require payment on these holidays:

• New Year’s Day
• Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Birthday
• Presidents Day
• Memorial Day
• Independence Day
• Labor Day
• Columbus Day

Those wishing to avoid parking meters may consider alternative forms of transportation. Long Beach recently installed 1,450 decorative bicycle racks throughout the city. These innovative racks offer year-round parking spaces for bicycles free of charge. Using mostly federal and state funds, the City has increased the miles of bike facilities by nearly 30 percent, and by the end of 2014 will have increased it by over 66 percent. By 2014, the City anticipates nearly 150 miles of bicycle routes will be available throughout Long Beach.
