The Permit Division closes at noon (12:00pm) on Fridays.  Any applications submitted after 11:30am on Fridays will not be processed until the following Monday (Tuesday when Monday is a holiday). The temporary signs are posted 48 hours in advance of the permit start.  Permits processed on Mondays can not have a start date prior to the following Thursday.

You can reserve space in front of your building for your moving container/crate. A Moving Container/Crate Permit Application must be submitted 4 business days prior to the moving date. The Traffic Department will post the area so that ample space will be available for your moving crate(s) for easy access to your property. Please remember that the date, times and truck footage of the moving container/crate are most important.

Modification of date, time or location to permits will not be accepted after signs have been posted unless due to extreme weather conditions.   In the event that an applicant requests a posting modification after signs are posted, there will be no refund and applicant's must re-apply and pay for a new permit.

Permit Fee:

After submitting your application a payment screen will appear. You may pay on-line with a credit or debit card.

All City permits are subject to review and can be revoked at any time per order of the Traffic, Parking and Transportation Director.
