The City of Ripon, along with many other cities, faces the on-going challenge of providing adequate on-street parking for both residents and visitors. Some residential areas are subject to a shortage of on-street parking spaces caused mainly by all-day or extended, on-street parking by non-residential visitors who access regional recreational areas, public educational campuses, and other public venues. Similar to the practice in other cities, the City of Ripon established a Residential Permit Parking Program in 2016 in an effort to alleviate this problem.
Residential Permit Parking is appropriate in those areas impacted by non-residential parking and where off-street parking is not adequate.
The City of Ripon Residential Parking Permit Program is described in the Residential Parking Permit Program Policy. The body of law that comprises the program can be found in Chapter 10.58 of the Ripon Municipal Code.
Applications for Parking Permits are available online (Residential Application or Temporary Application) and can be picked up from the Police Department lobby as well.
Completed applications can be submitted via e-mail to gro.nopirfoyticnull@pppr, or in person at the Police Department.
The following areas currently have active Residential Parking Permit Programs:
- Reynolds Avenue
- 400 Block of S. Manley Road
- 400 Block of S. Meyenberg Avenue
- McBrian Drive
