Downtown Residential Parking Permits

In 2011, new 4-hour timed parking zones and residential parking permits were created to preserve neighborhood parking as a result of the change to Sound Transit commuter parking.

Residential Parking


The residential permit parking program applies to all properties along streets with new 4-hour parking zones.  Residential parking decals (PDF) for single family residences, duplexes, triplexes, 4-plexes and condominium units are available with evidence that 2 vehicles are registered to the address.  

Business 4-Hour Zone Parking


Commercial, business, school, retirement, and church properties in the 4-hour zones can apply for parking permits for their staff by completing a Business 4-hour Zone Parking application (PDF) listing their employees and total number of permits required.
