The Ogden Dunes Police Department reminds residents that summer parking restrictions are currently in effect.

Police say all vehicles parked in the restricted area must display a valid 2022 beach parking permit.

All parking permits are available at City Hall Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. According to police, if you cannot stop by City Hall during these hours, call 219-762-4125 to arrange to get your permits.

Police noted that the restricted parking area has been expanded. You now need a parking permit to park on Diana Road from Sunset Trail to Valerie Road/Ski Hill Road. You also need a parking permit to park on Hillcrest Road from Beach Lane to Ogden Road.
According to the police, if you are a resident living in this extended area, you now need a parking permit to park on the street in front of your house. Vehicles parked in the restricted area without a valid beach area parking permit are subject to ticketing and/or impoundment.

Police also said: ‘If you live in the restricted parking area and are employing a contractor, please remind them that they must obtain a contractor parking permit from the town hall. These permits are valid only on the property where the work is carried out and cost nothing.
As a reminder of other parking rules throughout the city, vehicles cannot be parked on the roadway and all tires must be off the roadway. Do not block fire hydrants or private driveways, and remind yourself and your guests that you cannot park on private driveways that you do not have permission to park on.

Police are also reminding the public that dogs are no longer allowed on the beach.
