Special Events Parking

The Special Event Parking regulation allows residents and their visitors to park on the street during special events.

The regulation prohibits parking on specific streets, unless you have a Special Event Parking Permit. Temporary signs are placed at all major entrances to identify where parking is restricted.

If you live on a street where the Special Event Parking regulation is in effect, we will send you a permit before the special event.
