Neighborhood parking permits now offered online

Parking in Gainesville just got a little easier.

Residents living in areas surrounding UF's campus can now buy neighborhood permits and decals online without standing in lines at the Thomas Center, said Audrey Lewis, city treasurer. The parking passes apply to people who live in the city's controlled vehicular parking zones, including areas from University Avenue to Northwest Eighth Avenue and from U.S. 441 to Southwest Eighth Street.

This year's new permits and decals, which residents are required to purchase before the city's Sept. 12 deadline, cost $17.50 each.

If residents choose to use the online service, they must do so one week before the deadline or expiration date because of the time it takes to process requests and mail the orders, according to a release sent out by the city.

The decals and permits can be bought from the city's Web site,, under the "Online Decals" link on the lefthand side of the page.

Residents who rent property will need to pick up the mailed permits and decals from their property owners or managers.

Decals for students living in UF sorority and fraternity houses that have provided member lists to the city are also available online, according to the release. They will be mailed to house directors.

Meal-only decals for sorority and fraternity members are not included in the online service. If residents have any questions, they should call the city parking decal office at 352-334-5024.
