Free Holiday Meter Parking and RSVP Permit News

Beginning Friday, November 23, 2018 to Monday, December 31, 2018, parking meter fees will be temporarily waived to encourage patronage with local businesses. Visitors’ downtown will be able to park for free in spots up to the maximum time allotment which is noted on the parking meter. Typically that maximum time allotment is 2 hours. Parking enforcement officers will continue to enforce time restrictions and other parking violations during this time, with the exception of expired meters.

RSVP permits can be purchased online, or at the front counter of the Mill Valley Police Department, Monday thru Thursday, 8:00am to 5:00pm, and Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm.


The reduced cost of the RSVP permits is $25.00 per vehicle for Mill Valley residents, and $35 for residents with zip codes of 94920, 94925, and 94965.
