The Residential Parking Permit allows residents to park in excess of the posted one- or two-hour time limits on designated streets in their area between the hours of 8:00 am and 6:00 pm, or in locations designated for resident parking only between the hours of 8:00 am and 6:00 pm. This provides residents the opportunity for the limited storing of vehicles on public streets to the partial exclusion of commuter vehicles.
A Residential Parking Permit does not guarantee a parking place. It allows the right to park if space is available. Map of permit to spaces ratio.
If you apply online or by mail, and you live at an eligible address, your permit will be mailed to you at the permit address. Please allow up to two weeks for processing and delivery.
Residential parking streets are identified by an area number which is located in the lower left-hand corner of the one- or two-hour parking sign. If you do not have a residential permit you must move your vehicle in accordance with the signs or you may be cited.
Permit Issuance Dates
Permits for the September 1, 2016 – August 31, 2017 year are available to purchase in-person beginning Monday, August 15, 2016.
We suggest that residents of Areas 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 9 seek alternatives to on-street parking for their vehicles. These areas are very crowded due to a large number of vehicle owners living in the area with only a few streets suitable for residential parking. The number of permits issued is greater than the number of on-street parking spaces available in these areas. View the Map of Residential Parking Permit Areas.
