Residential Parking Permits
About Residential Parking Permits
Some areas of Volker limit on-street parking for non-residents. Residents of those streets may park freely with a Resident Parking Permit which is displayed in the rear windshield of their vehicle. PLEASE NOTE: These permits are no longer available from the City’s Public Works Department. The new process is to create an account with the City's permit application website Compass KC and apply for the parking permit there. A youtube video tutorial is available to help you undstand the application process:
Compass KC website (the permit you want is called Street - Parking : Parking - Residential Zone)
