Residential Parking

Residents may petition to have their streets designated for resident parking only.  To initiate a request to install a new Resident Parking area, or to make a change in an existing Resident Parking area, please follow this link.  Only residents and their guests will then be allowed to park on the street. Residents will be issued bumper stickers and guest passes for identification. Resident parking is enforced by issuing parking tickets.

To receive a permit, the following documents must be provided:


  • Completed Current Lease
  • Valid Driver's License
  • Valid Registration
  • Valid School ID

Students will be issued a permit for up to one year. Students will be issued two guest passes per dwelling unit.


  • Valid Driver's License with address of Resident parking street or valid utility bill with name and address
  • Valid Registration

Renters/Homeowners will be issued a permit for up to two years. Renters/Homeowners will be issued two guest passes per dwelling unit.

Only actual documents or copies are acceptable. Electronic copies are NOT acceptable.

We are unable to issue Residential Passes if these documents are not provided, are outdated, incorrect, or falsified in any way.

Resident Parking: Quick Facts for Residents

  • Residential street stickers must be affixed to the left-hand side of the car’s rear bumper without obstruction at all times.
  • Guest parking cards must be displayed at all times without obstruction in the lower left-hand corner of the car’s front window.
  • Guest parking cards are only for use by someone visiting the residence. Residents cannot use a guest parking card in order to park their cars on the street.
  • A resident parking permit is only valid on the street of residence (ie, the street indicated on your permit). It is not valid on any other “resident only” parking street.
  • You must have a valid permit for your car in order to park it on the street – don’t forget to renew your permit before it expires.

Additional information about resident parking can be found in Burlington Code of Ordinances, Appendix C, Sec. 27, No parking except with resident parking permit.
