The City of Ellensburg has established Residential Parking Zones or RPZ
in the central area of town. The RPZ protects street parking for those
who live and work in the zone. If you are a resident, service provider
or business located in the RPZ, you may apply for a permit. The permit
is placed in your vehicle, and that vehicle is allowed to be parked in
Individuals may apply for a Residential Parking Permit. Each unit in the
RPZ is allowed one permit for each vehicle owned, plus two additional
permits for visitors. If you live contiguous to the RPZ you may request
one RPZ permit for your vehicle. If you live in the RPZ and are
expecting guests, you can request a temporary guest permit.
Service providers and businesses located in the RPZ may request parking
permits, too. Service providers may request up to 2 permits, and
businesses 2 permits, plus an additional up to 2 for employees.
