There are several areas in Mill Valley which have been designated by the City Council as “Residential Parking Zones.” In these zones, residents may park for up to 72 hours without restrictions with the Residential Parking Permit affixed to their vehicle. All other vehicles are limited to four hours of parking.
(Note: All vehicles are subject to CVC 22651(k) which states: Vehicles must not be parked on a public roadway for more than 72 hours without being moved 1/10 of a mile).
Residential Parking Permits may only be obtained by residents who live in the following specified residential parking areas:
Permits are $20.00 per vehicle and are valid from February 1 through January 31 of the following year.
After August 1, the permits will be prorated to $10.00. If a new vehicle is purchased, a replacement permit may be purchased for $5.00 (Permits are non-transferrable from vehicle to vehicle). Acceptable methods of payment are cash or check payable to the “City of Mill Valley.”
To obtain a permit, please complete the Residential Parking Permit Application and submit it to the Police Department along with current California registration and proof of residency. Acceptable forms of proof of residency include valid driver’s license with accepted address, utility bill, lease or mortgage statement. All documents must show a current eligible address.
Applications and copies of California registration and proof of residency can be mailed to the Mill Valley Police Department, ATTN: RECORDS, 1 Hamilton Drive, Mill Valley, CA 94941.
