Residential Parking Permits

Beginning October 1st, Key West residents can purchase their new annual residential parking permit for Old Town. The new multi-colored stickers will help ensure marked residential parking spaces are reserved for residents.

The permits cost $20 a year. They are available at the Monroe County Tax Assessor’s office at the Harvey Government Center. Applicants will need to show proof of residency in Key West as well as a driver’s license and vehicle registration in order to obtain the residential parking permit.

In addition to ensuring that residents can park in the marked residential spaces, the permit 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
  • Key West Bight main lot in the 800 block of Caroline
  • Park N Ride garage in the 300 block of Grinnell
  • Truman Waterfront Park (except during events)
  • Smather’s Beach on-street parking on South Roosevelt Blvd

In order to use the permit in these areas, you must enter the permit number into the pay to park machine and display the receipt on your dash.

Old Town has over 1000 parking spaces marked as residential. Eligible vehicles will have exclusive rights to these spaces. The permits are available to residents, real estate property owners, military personnel stationed in Key West, seasonal residents who reside within the city for over four months of the year, and business vehicles affiliated with a business licensed in the city.

The parking permit does not in any way affect the 750 unmarked spaces or the 60 handicapped parking spaces in Old Town. Downtown workers who are not eligible for the permits are encouraged to explore the special monthly permit at the Park N Ride on Grinnell Street.
