York City is providing 24-hour parking permits free of charge for residents living in areas to be affected by the upcoming York Fair, which takes place Friday, Sept. 7, to Thursday, Sept. 16.
Each household is limited to three permits, and proof of residency and registration cards for each vehicle are required, according to a Tuesday, Aug. 14, city press release.
All residents living within an established area must have the permit displayed on the driver side window of their car or motorcycle to avoid a parking ticket, and the permits are only valid within one block of the holder’s residence.
Street sweeping in the residential fair parking area will be suspended during the fair.
Permits are available from Monday, Aug. 20, to Sunday, Sept. 16. They will be distributed from the revenue office in City Hall at 101 S. George St. weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and from the police department at 50 W. King St. weekdays from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., the release states.
