Residential Pay by Phone Program

ResPaybyPhoneWebMap081920In November 2016, City Council approved a pilot program to allow residents on eligible blocks to request residential pay by phone signage.  This signage requires vehicles without an applicable district sticker to pay a parking fee to park on the block, while exempting residents and guests that display a valid district permit. 

Meters are generally not installed on these blocks.  Instead, people who choose to pay to park may use the City’s pay by phone app, ParkMobile, purchase a receipt from a meter on an adjacent block, or purchase a pre-paid scratch-off permit.  Similar to other restrictions in the residential permit parking district program, residential pay by phone requests must be initiated by residents of a block through a petition.

On March 16, 2019, City Council voted to make the Residential Pay by Phone Program permanent within the area shown on the program map.
