Residential Parking Program

Residential Parking Permit Placement

The Residential Permit Parking Program is an on-street parking tool used to manage parking in mixed use areas.  Parking restrictions encourage the turnover of non-resident vehicles to encourage the best use of a limited parking supply.  Residents in the designated Permit Parking Areas may be eligible for permits exempting them from the restrictions. (SBMC § 10.46.062)    

If you live in an existing Permit Parking Area and would like a Residential Parking Permit, please apply online:
