Residential Permit Parking Program

Residential Permit Parking Districts are parking zones/areas in residential areas that specifically limit on-street parking to area residents with a permit. Residential Permit Parking Districts are initiated at the request of residents who petition the City. The process requires a completed and certified petition and a parking study. Then community meetings are held and the Traffic and Transportation Commission reviews the proposed program. Finally, the City Council must approve the program by adopting a resolution.

If you live in an area of the City which has already established a Residential Permit Parking District, you may purchase Annual Residential Permits, Annual Guests Permits or Daily Guest Permits. To purchase a permit, please visit the Residential Permit Parking Portal: https://www.citationprocessingcenter.com/SalinasPermits/
