Zone 2: Tenant Application
The mission of the Parking Committee is to study parking in the Fan district and make recommendations to the Board to improve the quality of life for all residents. The Committee is tasked to re-design of the Fan Restricted Parking District (Decal Parking Area) located in the eastern Fan. In addition, the Parking Committee is responsible for maintaining a list of all businesses that have received zoning approval based on leasing parking from other sources. Violators will be referred to the Zoning Chair.
A portion of the Fan has unrestricted parking – no parking stickers/permits are necessary.
Other areas are designated as Zone 1 or Zone 2, and parking in these areas longer than the
posted signage allows requires a parking permit sticker. Permit stickers are valid from July 1 –
June 30 each year, and there is no prorating of permit fees (e.g., buying a permit sticker in
May means another must be purchased at full price at the end of June). See the resources
listed below for more information. You may also wish to refer to the city’s Parking website.
