Residential Parking Program

Effective July 1, 2015, Norfolk's Residential Parking Program expanded parking services to residents and commercial businesses located within the zoned residential districts (RPP) of Norfolk while continuing to serve qualified residents living within the Central Business District (CBD) of the downtown.

Purchase RPP Parking Permits

RPP parking permits are available to residents and commercial businesses located within the zoned residential districts (RPP) of Norfolk. The boundaries of each RPP district can be viewed on this map.

The following regulations shall govern the issuance of RPP residential and commercial business parking permits:
  • Residential Parking Permit (RPP) decals are issued to residents only. Decals are issued annually (June 1 - May 31 of the following year, regardless of purchase date).
  • The maximum number of decals issued to a commercial business is 1 decal per 350 square feet of office or shop floor space minus any off street parking spaces. The number of decals should not exceed the number of employees at that location.
  • One (1) complimentary Visitor’s Pass hang tag will be issued per household. 
  • Additional Visitor’s Pass hang tags may be purchased at the Parking Customer Service Center.
  • RPP decals are not transferable. If the vehicle is traded or the bumper is to be replaced, carefully scrape the decal from the bumper and return it to the Parking Customer Service Center for a new decal at no cost.
  • The decal shall be displayed on the left rear (driver’s side) bumper of the vehicle and shall be visible to vehicles approaching from the rear.
  • Decals that have been lost, stolen or destroyed may be replaced by contacting the Parking Customer Service Center.

Residents and commercial business owners requesting an RPP parking permit should download and complete an RPP Registration Application, providing basic address and vehicle information. Submit the completed RPP application and required documentation by E-Business or in person at the Parking Customer Service Center.
