Residents in certain neighborhoods may request permits for themselves, their vendors and their guests.

The city’s new residential permit parking program — which addresses safety concerns about spillover parking in certain neighborhoods — went live April 30.

The program identifies neighborhoods eligible for a residential permit parking program as determined by traffic studies. The affected neighborhoods are adjacent to nonresidential facilities that attract large volumes of vehicles. Neighborhoods surrounding these facilities have been designated as a resident-parking-only zone:

  • Texas Christian University.
  • University of North Texas Health Science Center.
  • Will Rogers Memorial Center/Dickies Arena.

Resident-parking-only zones are one or more blocks of residential streets where on-street parking is limited to residents or residents’ visitors or vendors. To park in these zones, vehicles must display a valid permit. There is no cost for permits, which can be obtained online.

Resident and vendor permits

Residents who own property or occupy a residence (single-family home, duplex or multifamily unit) located within a designated resident-parking-only zone must submit an application for a permit. Each residence may receive up to three annual permits and two vendor permits (for yard crews, child care providers or other service companies).

Unlimited visitor and temporary permits are also available. Annual permits and vendor permits are valid for one year beginning Jan. 1 and expire Dec. 31 of each year, and must be picked up at SP Plus located at 1400 Gendy St. (in the Western Heritage Parking Garage) or 405 W. Seventh St. Be sure to bring a driver’s license and proof of residency (utility bill or copy of lease).

Stickers are used for annual permits, and hangtags are used for vendor permits. Permit pickup is available Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

Visitor and temporary permits

Visitor and temporary permits are available for residents who have guests arriving. These permits are valid for 24 hours. Temporary permits are for those times when residents are using a temporary vehicle or have long-term guests. These permitsmay be requested online, and they are valid for 30 days.

There is no cost for either a visitor or temporary permit.

Complaints related to vehicles parking in a resident-parking-only zone with no permit can be directed to 817-392-2091. For complaints outside of normal business hours, residents can call the Fort Worth Police Department non-emergency number at 817-392-4222. A police officer may respond and issue citations as appropriate.
