York City will begin offering free residential parking permits next week for those whose parking spaces will be affected by the York Fair.

Residents who live on designated blocks and streets near the fair, which runs from Friday, Sept. 6, to Sunday, Sept. 15, can obtain the permits. They can be picked up from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at City Hall or from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the York City Police Department beginning Monday, Aug. 19.

A valid photo ID and car registration are required. If the ID or registration doesn't have the applicant's current address, a lease or utility bill should be brought to prove residency.

There is a limit of three permits per household, and they are nontransferable. The permits only cover areas within a block of the holder's residence. Street sweeping in such areas will be suspended during the fair. 

Permits must appear on the driver's side rear window by midnight Friday, Sept. 6, to avoid tickets. 

Those with questions should contact Mary Shoff, the city's assistant parking bureau manager, at 717-849-2230.
