Are you a resident in town and need a permit?
All residential areas are patrolled 24 hours a day/7 days a week. Residential permits are issued to anyone owning their home in the areas posted as residential.
Residents must provide proof in order to purchase a permit. The items necessary to do this are as follows: drivers license or a bill show the physical address.
They must bring the vehicle to the office so that a permit may be placed on the windshield. Each resident may purchase up to 3 permits and 1 guest pass.
The fees for these permits will be list in the parking handbook. The guest pass is to be used by anyone visiting a resident but not by the residents themselves. The pass may be displayed for only 3 days. Residents displaying a residential permit may park in any areas marked as residential and also in Open 90 minute areas.
In order for a tenant to purchase a permit the landlord must fill out a rental property form. This form gives the location of the rental property and a list of the tenants. This form has to be verified by a town representative before permits can be issued. The tenant must provide a copy of the lease, and a bill showing that they live at that address. Students must provide a copy of their school transcript along with the other items listed above. All of the guidelines for either the residential or tenant permits can be found in the parking handbook which we have at our office and also on the town’s website.
