  • News and Notices    

    The City is implementing a Restricted Parking Zone (RPZ) within the West Main Street Neighborhood as indicated on the Map (PDF).  The purpose of this is to insure that properties within the zone have the ability to utilize on street public parking for normal daily use.  A Restricted Parking Zone means that property owners and residents will have the ability to park for an unlimited amount of time with the use of a parking permit.  Others using the area will be restricted to 3 hour parking.  These changes take effect on July 9, 2018.  Residents and property owners with questions about the parking zone changes, can contact Joe Welsh at 253-804-5050.  Residents and property owners who wish to acquire parking permits can contact the City of Auburn Permit Center at 253-931-3020.

  • Real-time Traffic Conditions

    Get up-to-the-minute traffic conditions on Auburn's most traveled roadways. The City's Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) was made possible by a federal ITS grant, funds from the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe and King County. The City will continue to add cameras as funds become available. These cameras are monitored during Amphitheatre events and other events or incidents causing abnormally high volumes.
