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 PortalIf you are a new resident and are having trouble registering, it is most likely because the old resident has not canceled, so we need to make the change for you.  Please email your address and proof you live at the new address to: eparking@ci.salinas.ca.us
