The City of Monterey offers a parking program which allows Monterey residents, displaying the proper decal permit, a maximum of two hours of free parking, per day, per parking facility. The decals are honored in the Cannery Row Garage (at Foam & Prescott), the Waterfront Attendant Lot (at Washington & Del Monte), and the Downtown West Garage, (at Franklin & Tyler, does not include time limit zones).
A Resident parking permit decal can be obtained at the Parking Division Office located at 340 Tyler Street, Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm. To be considered a resident, a person must reside within the City of Monterey and provide written proof of residency (utility bill, rental agreement) and current DMV vehicle registration (registered to the resident). These documents must be brought with the resident to obtain their decal. All active military personnel and their immediate family are eligible for this program - please bring your military ID card and vehicle registration. There is an annual $10 administrative charge for each decal permit. The permit is valid for 12 months from the date of issue.
This program cannot be combined with any other special parking program (locals or first hour free) offered by the Parking Division.
