If you live on a street that has a timed parking limit each day, the City of Prince George will allow you to apply for a Residential Parking Permit that will exempt you from the time limits posted.
There is no cost for these permits. The permitting program employs License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology. The license plates of exempt vehicles will be entered into our permitting system so that enforcement staff can easily identify them to avoid ticketing.
There will be a limit of two permits for each dwelling unit. In order to obtain a Residential Parking Permit, you will be required to provide a minimum of two pieces of documentation which proves residency. The primary piece of documentation of this proof is a vehicle registration document. This is sufficient to prove vehicle ownership. However, an additional piece of documentation is required to confirm the residents address. The following is a list of acceptable pieces of documentation to show proof of residency:
- driver's license showing the permit address
- phone, utility, or cable TV bill
- property tax receipt
- bank or credit card statement
- tenancy agreement
- vehicle insurance/registration document (showing the permit location as the current address)
- change of address registered with the post office
In instances where the resident is not the registered owner of the vehicle or the vehicle is not registered to the permit address (i.e. company vehicle or student here temporarily), the resident must provide proof of residency at the permit address.
If you have, or live in a non-permitted secondary suite, you will not be able to obtain any parking permits for that suite. All documentation is subject to verification by Bylaw Services.
You will also be allowed to obtain a Visitor Permit when required. Visitor permits will also be free and required to be obtained by the resident for their guest. Visitor permits will be limited to two days a time, but can renewed as needed.
