According to the blog CD2 Emergency Information, which provides news updates that concern City District 2, the following areas will be off-limits for parking:
- The south side of Ventura Boulevard, between Balboa Boulebard and Sherman Oaks Avenue;
- The north side of Ventura Boulevard, between Noble Avenue and Sepulveda Boulevard;Both sides of Sepulveda Boulevard, between Greenleaf Street and Valley Vista Boulevard;
- The west side of Sepulveda Boulevard, between Valley Vista Boulevard and the 405 Freeway;
- The east side of Sepulveda Boulevard, between Moraga Drive and Ovada Place.
