PDF[644KB] Changes Made to Parking Permits Press Release

In February 2013, City Council voted to change the cycle of which the parking permits expired. Parking permits now run on a cycle of July 1 through June 30 of the following year. Residents with a month-to-month lease are also now able to obtain guest parking passes.

Another change is that two existing parking zones have new colors to reflect the specific areas. The area of Greenbriar Drive is now a gold zone and the area of Weaver Avenue is now a brown zone.
