    Residential Parking Program

    The Residential Parking Program operates in the Licking Riverside neighborhood. Vehicles parked within these zones must display a parking permit. Parking permits are valid for one year and expire in December.

    Permit Application & Program Brochure

    Residential Parking Permits are available on an annual basis to residents of the Parking Program Area for $25 each, which includes one visitor pass. A maximum of two permits and two visitor passes are allowed per household, per year. These passes are valid for the calendar year in which they are issued, renewable annually, and are coded to each resident/address or police verification purposes. Permits are window stickers, which should be placed in the rear window on the driver’s side of the resident’s vehicle. Residents who do not purchase Resident Parking Permits must comply with on-street signage requirements.
