A block face is defined as the area between the property line and the road centerline for a distance of 1 block.  The block is defined by the block number or as the area between 2 cross streets.  (The fee will be applied when there is occupation of a full or partial block.)

The rental of parking meters is required if the Street Occupancy permit involves the affected parking meter space.  For pay station zones, the charge is calculated per vehicle space needed. (A typical space is approx. 7 meters).

Temporary No Parking signs are required for all SOPs that require the use of on-street parking space and subject to the applicable installation fee.  Having these signs allows the City to remove by courtesy tow any vehicles parked at the location when the signs are put up.  Vehicles parked after the installation of signs will be towed/ticketed at the owner's expense.

Fees are subject to applicable taxes.
