2017 Revere Resident and Visitor Parking Permits available online; City announces changes to Visitor Parking Permit Policy to protect resident parking and crack down on abuse and fraud
December 20, 2016
The City of Revere is pleased to announce that vehicle owners and residents who reside on a street designated as resident parking only may request 2017 Resident Parking Stickers and/or Visitor Parking Permits online beginning January 3.
Vehicle owners residing on a street designated as resident parking only may visit www.buymypermit.com/revere starting January 3 and submit an online application in order to receive a Resident Parking Sticker and/or Visitor Parking Permit(s). Once the online application process is complete, the Resident Parking Sticker and/or Visitor Parking Permit(s) will be mailed to the residential address on file.
Additionally, residents may visit www.revere.org/departments/parking-clerk and download an application to request a Resident Parking Sticker and/or Visitor Parking Permit(s) by mail or in-person. Upon approval of your application, your Resident Parking Sticker and/or Visitor Parking Permit(s) will be mailed to the residential address on file.
January of 2017 will be a grace period to allow residents, businesses, landlords and health care workers to apply for appropriate permits; enforcement of the residential and visitor parking policy will commence on February 1 and violators will be fined.
IMPORTANT: CHANGES TO VISITOR PARKING PERMIT POLICY
Please be advised that there is a new policy regarding usage of Visitor Parking Permits. This policy is being implemented to curtail Visitor Parking Permit abuse and fraud, and ensure that residential spots are reserved for Revere residents who are paying excise tax and registering their cars in the city.
Visitor Parking Permit usage will be tracked using software in the handheld devices used by Parking Control. A vehicle may not use ANY visitor parking permit for more than a total of ten (10) days in a one month period (excluding Sundays and holidays). A vehicle that has utilized a visitor parking permit for more than 10 days in a month will be issued a violation.
Violations will be linked to the license plate number of the vehicle, not the visitor pass – so even if a vehicle uses multiple visitor passes, it may only do so for a total of 10 days in a month. Visitor passes are designed for temporary use for guests of taxpaying residents – not to be used for commuter parking or as a way to park vehicles registered outside of the city on residential streets. This new policy is designed to crack down on abuse.
