Not all residential areas require a permit from the police department. In areas with signs that read "City Decal Exempt," the city tax decal serves as the permit. In those instances, city residents require no additional permit from the police department. Visitors will require permits as above.
Visitor Parking Permits
Residents may receive up to 2 free visitors parking permits per household through the police department. Visitors must display the permit while parked in residential areas. (Note different rules for the Winter Hill Zone 1 area
.) Please note that these restrictions do not apply to service or delivery vehicles conducting business in a residential area. Service or delivery vehicles are allowed to park in a residential area for up to 8 hours within a 24-hour period without the use of a permit.
Modify Existing or New Parking Restrictions
Residents interested in modifying existing parking restrictions or creating new parking restrictions should complete a restricted parking request form
