Resident Parking?

Question Corner: February 2020

by Tim Athan

From the February, 2021 issue

Q. On some streets there are signs about a residential parking permit.I am a city resident; do I have to worry about them?

A.You do. In several neighborhoods near downtown and campus that face heavy parking pressure, the city has created residential parking programs that limit parking by people who don't live there. Neighborhood residents who wish to park without the restrictions can purchase an annual permit. The cost of the permit goes toward the expenses the city incurs in monitoring the parking. Each program is distinct, so a permit is valid only in one neighborhood. Note that if a vehicle appears to be abandoned, even if it sports a residential parking permit, it may be tagged. If it's not moved within forty-eight hours, it may be ticketed, towed and impounded.
