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.
