Get a visitor parking pass

Applicants with motor vehicles registered in another state may apply for a temporary 30-day permit.

There are two types of visitor permits. Residents living in areas designated for the Residential Parking Permit program who have an annual permit may purchase an annual visitor pass for $30 ($20 for residents 65 and over). 

Residents who do not own a motor vehicle but would otherwise qualify for a residential parking permit may apply for an annual visitor permit at a cost of $30 ($20 for residents 65 and over). The $40 application fee would also be due at the time of purchase.

Residents may also apply for a daily visitor permit at a cost of $4/day ($2/day for residents 65 and older) to accommodate guests to their homes, assuming the $40 application has already been paid. 

While the annual visitor permit cannot be duplicated, it is transferable to different visitors at the permit holder’s discretion. Only one daily visitor permit is allowed at any given time.

To Apply

Applicants must

  • Apply online or download and complete the Residential Parking Permit Application
  • provide a valid driver's license from the visitor's home state
  • provide motor vehicle registration from the visitor's home state
  • provide a tax bill, or rental/lease agreement for the designated address
