Residential Parking Permit

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

A Residential Parking permit is required to park on certain streets in the City of Rochester.  As of October, 2016, Residential Parking permit enforcement will no longer require a physical tag on your vehicle as proof of a valid parking permit.  The license plate on your vehicle is now your permit.

As per City Ordinance 138A , permittees are required to provide a registered license plate number for the particular vehicle to be parked in the residential permit parking zone.  Parking enforcement will use automatic license plate readers to determine which vehicles are not permitted in the zone.  All Parking Tickets must be paid before Permit is approved.
