In order to get a residential parking permit sign placed on your street, here are the following steps you need to take:

  • Visit Philadelphia’s permit office located on 35 N. 8th Street to receive a petition packet.
  • Once your petition is complete, you are required to receive signatures of approval from at least 60% of your block’s residents (If your block has 100 residents, you need at least 60 signatures).
  • Take the signed petition packet and give it to your councilperson.
  • Once approved, the petition will be sent to the permit team.
  • The permit team will come out and install the appropriate signage in front of your property.
