Tips and FAQs

Street Occupancy Permit Information

Street Occupancy permits are available online for residents who wish to park moving vans, moving containers or crates, dumpsters or trucks being used for construction projects on City streets and for special events or block parties. The City posts temporary no parking signs for these permits. If you see one of these signs, read it carefully to ensure that the location at which you are parking is not temporarily a no parking zone.
