Parking Permit Information

Parking P

Parking permits may be purchased on a monthly basis for a variety of locations in the downtown.  Permits must be fully visible from the outside of the vehicle to be valid.


Parking permits must be renewed prior to expiration. Failure to do so may result in loss of the permit and being placed on a waiting list for the next available opening.

If there are extenuating circumstances that will prevent you from meeting the renewal deadline, you must contact the Parking Bureau at 603-516-6132, or email

All parking permits are for use in designated areas only.   For information regarding permit availability, contact the Parking Bureau at (603) 516-6132 during business hours.

Resident parking permits are available (one per unit) for qualified downtown units that have no off-street parking and are within 200’ of a designated municipal parking area, though some additional restrictions may apply. These permits are not transferable. The bearer must provide proof of residency and a contact phone number. The permit is not intended to authorize continuous long term day parking. All permits may be purchased directly from the Parking Bureau,  at City Hall ground floor (Locust Street side), Monday through Thursday between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm, and Friday between 8:30 am and 4 pm.

Vehicle owners may be required to move their vehicles to accommodate snow removal or other maintenance. The Police Department will attempt to contact the permit holder at their phone number of record, unless the affected area has been posted for a minimum of 12 hours in advance of the maintenance work.
