Parking Department

This year's Residential Parking Permit is proud to display the Southernmost Buoy and will be mailed to your address on file if you apply or renew online.

The permits cost $39.13 for a full year of parking. If you did not purchase one last years, you will need to apply. You can apply in-person or online. Applicants will need to upload proof of residency, a valid driver's license, and vehicle registration to qualify for a residential permit.

In addition to ensuring that residents can park in the marked residential spaces, the permit allows for parking for up to four hours, one time per day, without paying in any one of the five parking lots:

  • Fire Station #2 in the 600 block of Simonton – Zone 33054
  • Key West Bight main lot in the 800 block of Caroline – Zone 33046
