Residential parking program

Just a reminder that in some neighborhoods the City requires residents to have a parking permit and restricts the parking time for non-residents. In our neighborhood this certainly applies to the Riverbend area. It may also apply to the Oak Street shopping area, although I am not certain about that.

If you own rental property in an affected area don’t forget to tell your tenants about this.

The permits are issued annually. The Residential Permit Parking (RPP) office is now at 1340 Poydras St., 8th floor, NOLA 70112. The director is Ms. Diane Darwin. Phone #: 658-8200. Hours: M – F, 9 – 4.  The cost is $15.00/year.  Students can get a $5.00 semester permit.
More info: RPP   Note that the address is wrong on the City’s site.  I did not find a list of  areas that require permits.
Thanks to Marilyn Barbera for bring this up.
