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
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
Residential 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:
Valid driver’s license
Valid motor vehicle registration showing the vehicle is registered in your name (applicant, spouse or licensed dependent living at the address -- if last names differ, also provide a copy of birth certificate, marriage license or other official document supporting request); AND
