Each permit costs $12 per year, valid Oct.1 – Sept. 30. If you purchase the permit after April 1, the cost is prorated to $6. Only two City Resident Downtown Parking Permits are allowed per housing unit. Vehicle registration must be provided for each vehicle. Price is per permit.
Parking times and locations
The permits are valid only in designated garages, surface lots and side-streets in Downtown Delray (this does not include the beach). The permit will allow you to park for free parking seven days a week, between the hours of 12p.m. – 6 p.m. in the designated areas.
