Residential Permit Parking Program

Website Update 6-24-2020:
Parking Offices have reopened with limited hours to the public.  We are open Mondays - Fridays 10AM-2PM and all visitors will be asked to wear a mask when entering city buildings.  If you are unavailable during these times, please call 707-543-3325 and speak to our staff about alternate arrangements that can be made.  Staff are answering phones weekdays from 8AM-5PM.  At this time, enforcement has resumed patrols with reduced staffing levels.  Parking meter and garage fees are temporarily waived through June 30, 2020.  Paid parking will resume on July 1, 2020.

A residential parking program was enacted by City Council in order to protect and promote the integrity of designated neighborhoods. Parking regulations restrict unlimited parking by nonresidents, and provide the opportunity for residents to park near their homes. 


Residential parking permits are issued by the Parking Division for the term of one year. Residents of residential parking permit zones may apply for a permit by presenting proof of residence within the area designated, proof of current registration for the vehicle, and current driver's license for which the application is being made. No more than three permits shall be issued for each qualified address.
