Parking & Street Sweeping

Parking Permits

Almost all streets in Bolton Hill are included in Area 3 of the Baltimore City Residential Parking Permit program. On-street parking on these streets requires a windshield decal or placard Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to midnight. Without the decal or placard, there is a two-hour parking limit during week days. Enforcement with parking tickets is performed by the City on a regular basis during both daytime and evening hours.

Parking permit decals are $20 per vehicle annually. Each residence is allowed two visitor placards, which are also $20 each.

Bolton Hill parking permits are issued on an annual basis and expire at the end of March. Parking permit renewal begins between the middle of February and early March online here. If you have already registered your vehicle, you should be contacted by email when it’s time to renew.

BHCA sponsors community parking pass pick-up on one or two Saturdays at the end of March, which will be announced through the Bolton Hill Email Network and BHCA calendar. If you need to pick up a parking permit for the first time or other times throughout the year, permits can be obtained throughout the year at the City Parking Authority Office.

You must show proof of residency in the residential parking permit area with a current, non-commercial vehicle registration to obtain a residential parking permit. Please note that if you live in a building with five or more dwelling units, your vehicle is not eligible for a parking permit.

Street Sweeping

Street sweeping takes place in Bolton Hill on a weekly basis, with some sides of the streets swept on Mondays and Tuesdays and on the other sides on Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Make sure to check the street sweeping signs to know which side of the street is swept on which days to move your vehicle and avoid receiving a parking ticket.

Street sweeping is a mandatory city service run by the Baltimore City Department of Public Works. Street sweeping cleans the streets of trash and grime that could otherwise run into storm drains and end up polluting the Chesapeake Bay. Streets in the central part of Baltimore are subject to street sweeping on a weekly basis.
