The placard allows residents to park on borough streets for any special events and must be renewed annually.

Affected streets in West York include portions of Overbook Drive, Dewey Street, Orange Street, West Poplar Street and Worth Street, Mauck said.

Portions of West King Street, West Philadelphia Street, Stanton Street and North Highland Avenue will also be affected.
