All residential parking zone areas allow two-hour parking without a permit during designated times. All zone areas are posted with signs stating the time of day when the two-hour parking limit is enforced. With the appropriate zone permit, you may park beyond the posted time limits. Please note that the maximum number of permits issued is five (5) for properties in Zones A, E, F, G, and J. Eugene City Code allows up to five unrelated persons to live in a residence.
Parking Permits Have Gone Digital
All residential parking permits, including Guest and Service permits, are now issued through an online permit system. Permits are digital and assigned to your license plate. Permits can easily be shared between your registered vehicles, or switched to new vehicles, by editing your online profile. Zone stickers and other physical permits are no longer issued, but will be honored if unexpired.
