The City of Mountain View does not issue annual permits.
Driveway red curbing is a special type of red zone that is installed at driveways. Short sections of red curbing, typically requested by property owners, can be installed on either side of a driveway to promote better maneuverability into and out of the driveway and to improve visibility from the driveway.
Driveway red curbing can be installed to eliminate non-standard parking spaces (less than 18 feet) between driveways; a condition that sometimes leads to one or both driveways being partially blocked by parked vehicles. A typical driveway red-curb installation would include five feet of red curbing on either side of the driveway. However, the length of red curb installed at each location could be adjusted on a case-by-case basis depending on other factors, such as adjacent parking and operations at adjacent driveways. Parking restrictions for driveway red curbing is enforceable just as any other no-parking zone in the City (i.e., any vehicle, including that of the property owner, can be cited for parking in a driveway red curb zone).
If you have questions or would like to request that the City evaluate your situation to see if adding red curb would be appropriate, please use the Ask Mountain View system.
