A portion of the Fan has unrestricted parking – no parking stickers/permits are necessary. Other areas are designated as Zone 1 or Zone 2, and parking in these areas longer than the posted signage allows requires a parking permit sticker. Permit stickers are valid from July 1 – June 30 each year, and there is no prorating of permit fees (e.g., buying a permit sticker in May means another must be purchased at full price at the end of June).

See the resources  listed below for more information. You may also wish to refer to the city’s Parking website. Residents must display the Fan permit on their cars to park more than 1 hour from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Friday and, also on West Avenue and parts of Boyd and Birch streets where the regulation is 1 hour from 7:00 a.m. to midnight, Monday through Sunday.


New parking decals for residents of the Fan Restricted Parking District are on sale. They cost $25 each and are limited. Both mail-in and in-person renewal options are available for qualifying residents. The current Fan parking permit expires June 30, 2023. A City of Richmond Residential Parking Permit Application must be completed and approved prior to decal issuance.
