Residential Parking Permits 

Resident Parking Only (RPO)
A residential parking only  (RPO) program establishes zones to restrict on-street parking during certain hours and days and allows only those vehicles displaying a parking permit (rear view mirror hang tag) to park within the zone. Any vehicle parked in the zone without a permit, during restricted hours and days, can be ticketed, towed, or immobilized.

Each resident or business  in an RPO area can purchase a maximum of six hang tags. Hang tags cost $6 plus tax per year. To qualify for a permit, the person must show proof that they live or own a business in the zone which has been designated as RPO. Before issuing the tags, the City will investigate to reveal any unresolved parking violations. Households may also purchase a maximum of 50 one-day guest permits for events or parties on a specific date at a cost of 10 cents each.

Any vehicle parked in a designated zone during the effective hours (including vehicles with handicapped parking tag or license) must display the RPO hang tag or be in violation. Applicants are required to provide a copy of their driver's license with current address and utility bill or lease agreement. Complete the RPO Application.
