Restricted Parking Zone (RPZ) Online Permitting
2010 Program Changes
The system for permit distribution and the actual permits themselves changed in 2010:
Permits have been designed specifically for each vehicle, with the vehicle's license plate imprinted on the decal and guest hangtag. This is helpful to enforcement staff, who provide better enforcement because of these permits. Current permits are still valid until their expiration date.
Registration requirements: Your vehicle must be registered with the Washington State Department of Licensing (WA DOL) in your name and at your address. To change your address online, visit: http://www.dol.wa.gov/vehicleregistration/changeaddress.html . If your name does not appear on the vehicle registration, you may not qualify to receive a decal for your vehicle.
