First, I want to say to all to watch where you park in the City of West Hollywood because their signs are very confusing especially for visitors. (See pictures of some of the signs and watch out because the Towing companies have partner with the City of West Hollywood to make money from you).

I would just say to all, not to visit a city the was incorporated in 1984 and who needs their residents and visitors to survive. But they should provide incentives to visitors to visit, like 2 free hours parking and validation from the business owners.

The city of West Hollywood gets a percentage from the towing companies for towing your car. Also the tickets are very high. Do you think the is fair for visitors to be abuse by the city of WEHO? Well, next time just think twice if you visit the City of West Hollywood and make sure to pay for a parking spot and do not use their meters like the they will respect their visitors and not abuse them.

So do not visit the City of West Hollywood, please go somewhere else to expend your hard earn money. Other cities will appreciate your business and support, not the City of West Hollywood, where they are taking advantage of visitors.

The City of West Hollywood should be investigate by big TV Networks and publicize the underground investigation to all their citizens.

Information from the City of West Hollywood Visitors Bureau site:
Officially founded in 1984 as the 84th city in Los Angeles County, West Hollywood is a young, vibrant community with a colorful and entertaining past!

From its 19th century beginnings as a virtual “no man’s land,” the region soon became prime location for a railway, and in 1894, a man named Moses Sherman bought the land and designated it as the headquarters of the Los Angeles Pacific Railway Co. This venture sparked the need for housing, and West Hollywood (then a town called “Sherman”) started to see its first bout of immense growth. The little town grew fast, and by 1912 it was dubbed “The Queen of the Foothills” and guidebooks praised its climate, ideal location, and quality of community.

In the 1970’s the gay movement influenced West Hollywood’s direction, as gay and lesbian citizens became more assertive of their rights and felt free to ‘come out of the closet’. Because West Hollywood was unincorporated, it flew under the then-homophobic Los Angeles Police Department’s radar, and a thriving gay community was established. Due to the gay influence and citizens with money to spend, commercial and residential sections of the city were revitalized, and these new attractive properties made for a new vibrancy throughout the city. Along with gays, Russian Jews sought out West Hollywood as a refuge, a mix of elderly citizens and young families flocking to what is now the East Side of West Hollywood.

At this time, citizens and leaders realized the problems of occupying an unincorporated city and after years of grassroots campaigning and fast mobilization by community members to take more local control, West Hollywood was formally incorporated as its own city in 1984.

Editor Note: More photos will be posted soon and will be posting reports from other writers about this issue with the City of West Hollywood. They need their citizens and visitors to be independent but with this kind of business practices they will not be able to survive.

City Of West Hollywood Parking Services Improper Parking Tickets and Unfair Contesting Procedures West Hollywood California

I went out with a group of friends on Rampage Street just north of Santa Monica Blvd and parked at a meter. I paid the meter until the time posted on the sign. When I returned I received a parking ticket that stated I was parked in a residential restricted parking area.

I noticed that there is a restricted area located north of where I was parked. I was obviously not parked in the residential area since I was at a meter. I took a picture with my camera phone but it came out poorly.

All of my friends I was with checked the signs and thought that this was very strange and was an error and I should have no problem contesting it. I contested the ticket and went through the entire procedure (online first and then a written statement) only to be denied.

I have heard other similar reports when I told others of my situation who advised that they no longer use street parking. There is no checks and balance system for Parking Services in West Hollywood - please be advised when parking within city limits.
