The City of York provides parking permits for residents that live on the designated blocks/streets during the York Fair, which runs from September 6th to September 15th 2019.
In order to identify a resident’s vehicle, a permit system was developed. All resident’s living within the established area wishing to park their vehicles on the street during the fair must have a permit properly displayed to avoid receiving a parking fine.
There is a limit of three (3) permits for each household. Please bring proof of residency and registration cards for each vehicle needing a permit.
Permit is valid only within one block of the holders residence. Parking outside of your immediate area could result in a fine. Motorcycles WILL be issued a permit. Motorcycles SHOULD PARK ON THE STREET AND NOT THE SIDEWALK.
Street sweeping in the residential fair parking area will be suspended during the fair.
All normal parking laws remain in effect. The parking permit does not give you permission to park illegally.
Permits are available Monday, August 19, 2019 thru Sunday, September 15, 2019. Permits will be distributed from the Revenue Office in City Hall located at 101 South George Street weekdays from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and from the Police Department (located at 50 West King Street) weekdays from 5:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m.
Obtain A Permit
To obtain a permit you need to bring with you valid photo identification and a current registration for each vehicle you need a permit for, with a limit of (3) permits for each household. If your identification and or your registration do not have your current address on them, you would need to bring a copy of your current lease or a current utility bill that has that information on it.
Fair Parking Permit Guidelines
Permit parking is in effect 24 hours a day for the duration of the fair.
Parking Enforcement Officers will be on patrol during this time.
Permit must be displayed on the drivers side rear window so it is visible from the street. We ask that you tape the permit to the window. Permit must remain with the vehicle it was issued to. The registration number on the permit must be the same as the license plate on the vehicle. Permits cannot be transferred from one vehicle to another. Permits must be properly displayed by midnight September 6, 2019 or the vehicle may be subject to a parking citation.
Residents or non-residents requesting a visitor’s permit or who may have other questions must contact Mary Shoff, Assistant Parking Bureau Manager at 717-849-2230.
