Permits are no longer issued in person over the counter. Customers who visit our lobby may drop off a completed application, however, please allow 5-7 business days for processing.
In order to make the process efficient and accessible to all residents, the City has an online permitting system. Our online system automatically moves your application through each stage of the process which cuts down the processing time. Therefore, online applications are processed ahead of paper requests received via mail or those dropped off in our lobby.
Having an online account also streamlines your future permit requests. Your address and previous vehicle(s) are retained in the system. As a returning online customer, simply upload your proof of residency on your next permit request.
