A Residential Parking Permit allows an eligible vehicle to park in specially marked residential parking spaces in the Historic District and four hours free, one time per day, in certain parking lots.
Applicants will need a valid Driver’s License, Vehicle Registration and Proof of Residency to complete this application. If registering commercial vehicles, a Key West Business License is also required.
The annual registration permit fee is $20.00 and permits need to be renewed annually by the end of October. Fees are intended to cover the cost of issuance and are not refundable or prorated. Permit decals are the sole property of the City of Key West and are not intended for resale or transferable. All other parking regulations remain unaffected by this permit program. For example, no boat, trailer, RV, or vehicle over 20 feet in length, can park on-street or in municipal lots. Additionally, all vehicles parked on-street must be moved every 72 hours (three days) per existing City Code.
