Parking vehicles opposite each other on both sides of the street is prohibited in Diablo because the roads are narrow and it obstructs passage of emergency vehicles. Park on one side only.
DCSD reminds all residents that you must be at least 16 years old and have a valid driver's license to drive a golf cart on Diablo’s roads.
Homeowners are responsible for clearing vegetation that encroaches onto the road and into the creeks that run through your property.
In 2015 the California Legislature passed Senate Bill 272 which requires govt agencies to create a catalog of enterprise systems that are used by the agency. Attached is the District’s catalog. DCSD SB272
