Program Overview

RPPs were designated primarily for residential areas where there is a scarcity of convenient off-street parking for residents, where the majority of legal on-street parking spaces are utilized by commuters and non-residents, and where residents are experiencing traffic, noise, and safety problems.

The RPP seeks to alleviate a common set of problems found in cities with residential neighborhoods close to non-residential developments such as offices, stores, hospitals, restaurants, schools, and major transit routes.

=The Residential Parking Permit (RPP) program allows vehicles owned by residents to park in a RPP neighborhood for the posted time limit without being ticketed. If your neighborhood is participating in a RPP Program, you will need to acquire and display a RPP decal for every vehicle that will park on neighborhood streets during the specified enforcement period.   

RPP Application Requirements

R​esidential Parking Permits will only be issued to applicants living in the affected area.  You must show proof that residency has been established by providing a copy of:
