The City of Westminster has implemented a new immobilization device for parking enforcement in the Downtown and Westminster Station areas: The Barnacle.

Call 720-263-9120 or go to PAY.BARNACLEPARKING.COM to release the device from your vehicle.

The device securely attaches to the vehicle’s windshield using 1,000 pounds of force.

Once a vehicle has three (3) or more outstanding parking violations, it is eligible for immobilization and the owner will be issued a notice of immobilization. The owner may dispute the validity of the notice within 21 days and ask for a review.

How to dispute a parking citation issued by Westminster Parking & Curbside Management

Step 1 – Administrative Review

The first step in disputing a parking citation is an administrative review. This review is intended to screen citations issued by error where the respondent is not at fault. If you feel you were issued an invalid citation, you can dispute the citation online or by mail.

Send your written dispute and supporting documents to:
Parking & Curbside Management
P.O. Box 747.
Westminster, CO 80036

Step 2 – Administrative Hearing

If your citation is not dismissed in step 1 and you wish to contest the result of the administrative review, you can request a hearing with an Administrative Hearing Officer. All rulings by administrative hearing officers are final.
