Starting in 2017, there will no longer be a $5.00 fee for renewals; all permits will be charged a flat rate of $15.00. Each household is entitled to a total of five permits. The first three permits (1 visitor and 2 residential permits) can be purchased for $15.00 each. An additional two residential permits may be purchased for $50.00 each. Parking permits are valid until the last day of the month, one year from date of application.
Additionally, permit hangers will no longer be required to be displayed for residential permits. Hangers will still be required for visitor permits.
Permits will now expire at the end of the month, one year from date of purchase. If renewing a permit, please apply in the same month your current permit expires.
Permit parking allows residents to have priority parking in signed permit parking areas on their street. Permit parking does not guarantee permit holders the right to park in front of their own homes. Permit parking does not guarantee a parking space at all; it only gives permit holders advantages over non-permit holders.
Permit parking is installed in response to situations where a chronic and heavy demand for on-street parking by non-residents is a concern. It is not intended to address short-term intermittent parking problems generated by such things as pubs, parks, churches and construction.
There are two types of permit parking regulations: permit parking only and time-limit parking (usually 2 hours) with permit exemption. The permit only regulation is normally in effect full time, while the time limit regulation (usually 2 hours) would only be in effect between the hours of 8:00 am to 6:00 pm from Monday to Friday.
Each parking permit entitles the permit holder to park within a one block radius of the hundred block indicated on the permit.
