What is a Residential Permit?
City of Coral Gables has instituted a Residential Permit Parking Program that is available to any residential property owner when there is significant shortage of parking availability in the immediate area due to commercial parking incursion. A residential property owner can petition a Residential Permit Parking Program in a specific block of any single street named or numbered. If the petition is signed by a majority, one more than 50 percent of the property owners within the designated zone, the parking director may determine whether the designated area qualifies for inclusion in the residential decal program. The cost for a Residential Parking Permit is $20.00 per vehicle per year. Four visitor hanglets are sold per participating household. Additional visitor hanglets are available for purchase at $5.00 each per day.

Please email parking@coralgables.com the three documents listed below (required each year to buy your permit. Substitutes or expired documents will not be accepted). All documents must have the same matching address within the residential zone and in the name of the person acquiring the permit:
