Each permit is valid within a block of the holder’s residence. Parking outside of the immediate area could result in a fine. 

Motorcycles also must be permitted and should be parked on the street and not on the sidewalk. 

Street sweeping in the residential fair parking area will be suspended during the fair. 

All normal parking laws remain in effect. The parking permit does not give permission to park illegally.
