Residential parking permits can be obtained by residents who reside in a Controlled Parking Area (see map for areas) by one of two ways. To apply in person, please come by the City of Greenville's Financial Services Department, 200 West 5th Street (see further information below). To apply online please CLICK HERE. All Terms and Conditions MUST BE accepted prior to receiving an online approval for a Residential Parking Permit. There is also a $2.50 convenience fee for paying online. Once approved, the permit will be mailed to the resident at the location indicated by the permit. The approval process will take approximately 2 business days.
A resident of a controlled parking area is eligible to receive one (1) parking permit decal for each vehicle operated by the resident. Vehicles used for nonresidents, commuting or for storage, do not qualify for a parking permit. The parking restrictions apply Monday through Friday between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., or as signage indicates. A residential parking permit does not guarantee or reserve a parking space for the holder.
Temporary parking permits are issued to provide accommodations for non-residents to access on-street parking for residential property within the City's controlled residential parking areas (see Temporary Parking Permits for Residential Parking Areas).
