The Preferential Residential Permit Parking (PRPP), adopted by Council in 1989, has been successful in resolving residential parking concerns in thirteen City neighborhoods. To see a list of permit parking areas and restrictions click here.

Obtaining Permits

Residents of a PRPP area are eligible to apply for up to three resident permits for specific vehicles, and two guest permits for visitors. Initial application must be submitted in person and subsequent renewals may be done by mail. These permits cost $25 each and are renewed on an annual basis.

To apply for permits, please bring the following documentation with you to City Hall:

  • Completed Permit Application
  • Photo Identification, such as a valid CA drivers license, passport, etc.
  • Proof of Residency, such as current utility bill, lease agreement, rent receipt, school records, etc.
  • Current Vehicle Registration (if requesting permit for a specific vehicle)
