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 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

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We are unable to issue Residential Passes if these documents are not provided, are outdated, incorrect, or falsified in any way.
