Residents may also obtain visitor permits by providing the address where the car will be parked, the vehicle tag number, the duration of the stay and a $4 deposit. Once the visitor hang tag is returned, you’ll get your deposit back. On metered streets, the cost is $1 per hour or $8 per day. On non-metered streets, the cost is $1 per day. Visit the Parking Office to apply for and pick up a visitor permit. Cost may vary depending upon location.
