Residential Parking Permits (Including Guest Permits)


Residential parking permits are valid from November 1st through October 31st of each year. Residential Permits are checked using license plate, therefore there are no physical permits. It is important to update changes to your account due if any vehicle information changes. Guest permits can be purchased by residents as well up to two per household. Guest permits are a hanging tag that should be placed in the guest’s windshield, hanging from their rear view mirror. You do not need to purchase a resident parking permit to purchase a guest permit. We do not replace lost or stolen guest permits, you must wait until November 1st to purchase new ones. The cost of these permits is:

  • $20 RESIDENT
  • $30 GUEST
