Application and Required Documents

Please have the following documents ready when applying for a Residential Parking Permit:

Vehicle Registration 

  • Required for Residential Parking Permits
  • Must be valid– as ordinance does not allow vehicles with expired registration to park on the road.
  • Temporary tags are acceptable. Once you obtain the permanent tag, you must contact parking with the updated information. Failure to do so can result in a citation being issued to the vehicle.
  • We do not accept vehicle titles or insurance cards in lieu of the Vehicle Registration

Driver’s License 

  • Must be Valid


  • For renters only
  • Must be valid – with valid term dates, and signed by the tenant and landlord


  • Only needed for those who have recently bought a house as our records may not be updated.
  • Most homeowners can be verified through the parcel search and do not need to supply these documents.
