Resident Parking Permit Information

At the 3rd Precinct Police/Community Relations Council Meeting on November 15, 2022, an issue came up about Residential Parking Problems.

In many areas, residents without adequate parking for their own Residences/Apartment buildings, use street parking near other Apartments or Residences, often park in other residents' alleys, or park blocking driveways.

We asked about the ability to get resident-only parking stickers in some neighborhoods.

Here is the response from Detroit City Council Member Gabriela Santiago-Romero ‐ District 6's representative:
