Valet Zones

Valet parking zones are designated locations in the public right-of-way where an attendant takes possession of a vehicle for the purpose of parking and returns the vehicle to the owner when requested. Valet parking is most utilized near restaurants in areas with limited parking. A Valet Parking Permit is required to operate a valet zone in the public right-of-way. If your business would like to request an on-street valet parking zone, please review the Valet Parking Rules and Regulations (Updated 09.23.2020) to determine eligibility, requirements and fess associated with establishing a valet parking zone. 

To apply for a valet parking permit, visit to create an online profile. Once your profile is created, you will need to complete a loading zone application by following the steps below.

1. Under the Right of Way Section, click “Create and Application” 
2. Read and accept the disclaimer
3. Complete steps 1 and 2 again and click on “On-Street Valet Permit” and complete the application

    Once your application is complete, city staff will review and make certain everything is correct before creating an invoice. Once the invoice is created and fees are entered into the system, you will receive an email telling you to log back into the system and pay the required fees to process your permit.
