Parking Permit Information

Parking P

Parking permits may be purchased on a monthly basis for a variety of locations in the downtown. Permits must be fully visible from the outside of the vehicle to be valid.


Parking permits must be renewed prior to expiration. Failure to do so may result in loss of the permit and being placed on a waiting list for the next available opening.

If there are extenuating circumstances that will prevent you from meeting the renewal deadline, you must contact the Parking Bureau at 603-516-6132, or email

All parking permits are for use in designated areas only. For information regarding permit availability, contact the Parking Bureau at (603) 516-6132 during business hours.

Permit Replacement Regulations: Permits that need to be replaced (lost or not returned by a tenant that moved out) will only be replaced upon payment of the pro-rated value remaining on the permit.

Vehicle owners may be required to move their vehicles to accommodate snow removal or other maintenance. The Police Department will attempt to contact the permit holder at their phone number of record, unless the affected area has been posted for a minimum of 12 hours in advance of the maintenance work.

Once a permit is issued, no refunds will be allowed.
