  • All unpaid parking tickets issued to the individual and the vehicle must be paid before registration will be accepted.
  • Vehicles must be operable and moved at least once every five days.
  • You cannot register boats, trailers, campers, buses, and RVs.
  • No vehicle which exceeds the size of one parking stall can be registered.
  • The program is not for work-related parking.
  • Parking is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Registered vehicles are not assigned a specific parking spot, nor are residents guaranteed a parking place in front of or immediately near their home.
  • Program registration is tied to your specific license plate. You must update your permit if you purchase a new vehicle or if your existing vehicle receives a new license plate. Failure to do so will result in a citation.
  • You must still park legally. Restricted parking such as parking in a yellow zone or too close to a driveway will result in a citation. Visit the Restricted Parking page for a complete list of infractions.
