Please note: There are currently two renewal periods. The permit renewal period map shows the area in which permits will be renewed in August of each year. If your street is not within the area in the map, it is assumed that your renewal period is in January of each year. If your zone is moving to a different renewal period, a notification for permit renewal will be displayed on your street indicating the change and who to contact to receive permits.
What you need to have before applying for permits:
Proof of ownership, management or residency must be shown with at least one of the following:
A valid driver’s license with current street address
A current utility bill in the requester’s name dated within 30 days of the date of application
A current property tax statement
A copy of an executed lease between the owner or agent of the property and the tenant or tenants. Only those tenants indicated on the lease will be considered eligible to purchase permits. Subleases are not accepted.
License plate numbers of vehicles receiving decal permits
Payment is only accepted with exact cash or check. Checks should be written out to the City of Austin.
How to apply for permits:
Each zone is specified as either managed by City of Austin staff or coordinated with a neighborhood agent that helps to distribute permits. To determine what zone you're in and whom to contact, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your name and street address and request for permits to receive information on how to obtain permits.
