Downtown Parking

Parking downtown is limited to two hours in any one space or block face between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM on weekdays.  This limit applies to all spaces, including handicap parking unless they are permanent, reserved spaces.  A block face is defined as a portion of a street or highway between to intersections, including all on-street parking along both sides of the street or highway within such boundaries.  Parking on the street is prohibited from 3 a.m. to 6 a.m., seven days a week.
 

Recreational Vehicles and Trailers

The owner of a recreational vehicle must get a special permit if they want to park their RV on the street for more than five days in a 30 day period. The permit requires permission of the nearby homeowners, which Casper Police Department will handle obtaining. The permits only apply to the space immediately in front of the owner's house. Permits cannot be issued for homes on arterial or collector streets. These rules also apply to trailers that are more than 20 feet long, and to trailers that are 4.5 feet high.

 

Parkway Parking

The "parkway" is the area between the curb and the sidewalk. Parking on the parkway is generally not allowed, but residents can apply for a parkway parking permit if their residence is on 12th Street or 13th Street from CY to McKinley. The permit application costs $25 with an initial annual fee of $250 and a renewal annual fee of $50.  It requires that the owner have the approval of other nearby homeowners, which Casper Police Department will obtain. 


Loading Zone Parking Permits

These spaces are designated specifically for use by individuals loading and/or unloading merchandise and materials.


Critical Parking - Schools/Neighborhood Overflow Parking Permits

These spaces are designated for use by individuals in residential districts who are severely impacted by high volume of traffic created by the proximity to schools, or homes within the same block face or five hundred (500) feet, whichever is greater, whose owners and or occupants have a total of four (4) or more vehicles and/or R.V.'s.  A critical parking-school parking/neighborhood overflow parking permit allows the permit holder to park on the street in a critical parking area adjacent to the permit holders' residence.

 

Snow Emergency Regulations

The ordinance designates certain streets to be Snow Emergency Routes. The intent is to make snow clearing faster and more effective. This allows snow plows to clear the road all the way to the curb.

Under the rules, no parking will be allowed on snow routes during a snow emergency. When four or more inches of snow is predicted, the City can declare a snow emergency. Once the emergency is declared, residents will be given four hours to move their vehicles from parking spaces along the streets of these designated snow routes.
