Reminder: Renew Your Parking Permits

As we noted in our story published in last month’s Bulletin, all current residential parking permits will expire March 31. You may renew and pay for your permits online at the Parking Authority website.

Neighborhood Pickup Days take place at Brown Memorial Presbyterian Church on Lafayette and Park Ave., Saturday, March 18, from 8 am to 12 noon, and Saturday, March 25, from 8 am to 1:30 pm. Purchase your permits online at least three days before you plan to pick up. Enter at the Lafayette St. door.

You can also obtain your permits beginning on March 13 at the Parking Authority Office, 200 W. Lombard Street, Suite B, 21201.

The Parking Authority accepts credit cards, checks and money orders made out to the Director of Finance. Cash is not accepted.

Be sure you bring current documentation when picking up your permits, including your current Maryland Vehicle Registration with an Area 3 address, plus one of the following that shows an Area 3 address:

  • Current driver’s license
  • Proof of residency, such as a current lease signed by all parties that is not month-to-month.
  • Proof of home ownership (settlement papers)
  • Utility bill in your name that is at least 30 days old
  • Official State ID card

If your vehicle is registered out of state, you must register your vehicle in Maryland before being permitted to purchase a parking decal, unless you are a full-time student or a member of the military.

Out-of-state students and military must purchase a Non-Resident Permit from the MVA and present it at pick-up for the decal to be released.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Parking Authority at or 443-573-2800, extensions 863, 845, or 851. You may also contact your Area 3 representative, Patsy Andrews, by email at
