City of Fresno Announces Downtown Meter Occupancy Permit 

FRESNO -- The City of Fresno Parking Services Division now offers a parking permit to the public for long term meter use downtown. The Meter Occupancy Permit is a monthly hangtag that allows a vehicle to park at any City of Fresno parking meter, regardless of the posted time limit, without depositing coins.

“For a flat fee, the permit can provide an entire month’s worth of parking at premium meter spaces close to the user’s destination. It’s a convenience people have asked for and now we can meet that need,” Parking Manager Del Estabrooke said.

The permit is $120.00 per month and goes on sale the last Wednesday of each month for the following month. Permits for March are now available at City Hall, 4th floor, 8am-4pm Mon-Fri. Contact 621-7275 or visit for more information.
