      The City of Takoma Park requires that you re-new your parking permits
      prior to July 1 every year. There is no grace period and tickets will
      be written for expired permits after June 30.

      To ease the process and to encourage early registration, the Police
      Department offers permits by mail, as well as in-person purchasing.
      Residents should complete the form, which can be picked up from the
      Police Department or downloaded and printed from the Takoma Park Police
      Department web site at

      Registration, by mail and in person, began on June 1, 2014, and
      in-person is Monday - Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

      ● Permits by mail are for residences only, with a $1 charge for
      mailing and handling.

      ● In-person purchasing is required for businesses and for Area B

      ● Residents should complete the form/application and return it, with
      payment, to the Police Department. Photocopies of the current vehicle
      registration card for each vehicle and a driver’s license for at least
      one owner must be submitted with this form. Attachments must show a
      current Takoma Park address in the requested permit area. Include day
      and evening phone numbers in case any questions arise in processing.

      ● A decal and year sticker for each registered vehicle will be mailed
      back within three business days of receipt. Two visitor parking permits
      will be included for each address.

      ● Businesses in the permit areas should submit the names of employees
      on company letterhead with their request. Not more than three
      employees’ permits are allowed. A home-based business must show
      evidence of a currently-operated business, which is current on payment
      of personal property taxes.

      ● A 50 percent discount is offered to hybrid or all-electric

      ● Nine Area B permits are available on a first-come, first-served
      basis to residents living more than .75 miles from the Takoma Metro
