In case your current parking permits scheduled to expire on June 30th – this message is for you! Please read on..
It is time to renew them before July 1st, 2021. Beginning Monday, June 14th you may apply online for virtual permits for the vehicle(s) that are registered to your College Park address by going to collegepark.aimsparking.com, or you may opt to apply by mail to, or in person, at our City Hall offices, located at 8400 Baltimore Avenue, suite 375, College Park, MD 20740 between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm Monday through Friday. City’s Davis Hall location will accept walk-in services ONLY between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm Monday through Friday.
As we transition to this new technology, physical permits will no longer be required to be displayed as long as your vehicle(s) is/are registered with the city for your permit area. However, physical visitor passes will still be available for your guests for the upcoming permit year period, which you must request. Both virtual permits and visitor passes will be free of charge. If you wish to register your vehicle for a permit and/or obtain visitor passes for your residence, you will need to indicate this, regardless of how you apply (online, by mail, or in-person). Either way, your vehicle(s) will need to be registered for your permit area in order to park on the street at or near your residence.
OWNER OCCUPIED PROPERTIES:
*You may apply for permits for each vehicle that is registered to your College Park address by providing a copy of the vehicle registration at the time of application (Please Note – Quantity limitations apply as to the number of permits and visitor passes allocated to each property address within the permit restricted area). If you wish to obtain visitor passes only you must request them. You may apply online at collegepark.aimsparking.com, or by going here for an application form to either be mailed in or brought in person to our City Hall offices.
*In addition to providing a copy of your vehicle registration, each tenant must also submit a copy of his or her signed lease agreement as proof of residency, along with a valid photo ID at the time of application. If the vehicle has out-of-state license plates (other than Maryland), you must apply in person. (Please Note – Quantity limitations apply as to the number of permits and visitor passes allocated to each property address within the permit restricted area). If you wish to obtain visitor passes only you must request them. You may apply online at collegepark.aimsparking.com, or by going here for an application form to either be mailed in or brought in person to our City Hall offices.
In addition, City Code prohibits the use of visitor passes more than two hundred (200) feet from the property address to which they have been issued and may not be used in lieu of registering the vehicle for a residential parking permit if the individual to which the vehicle belongs resides at your address (Penalties will apply if found in violation of this ordinance).
TAKE HOME COMPANY VEHICLES:
*If you are required to bring a company vehicle home as part of your employment you must include a letter from your employer confirming such, as well as a copy of the vehicle registration in order to apply for a parking permit for that vehicle. (Please Note – Vehicles that may violate the city’s ‘Prohibited Vehicle’ ordinance will not be permitted to register for a parking permit, nor park on any residential street(s) within the City limits at any time).
Lastly, Maryland State law prohibits out-of-state vehicles from remaining in Maryland for a period longer than sixty (60) days unless you are a member of the military on assignment and can provide such paperwork from either a local military establishment or base within the Washington Metropolitan area. With this in mind, the City of College Park will not issue, or allow to be issued any parking permit for out-of-state licensed vehicles unless the owner/operator does one of the following:
1. Register the vehicle in Maryland and purchase Maryland State tags/license plates, or;
2. Purchase a Non-Resident permit. Non-Resident permits are available at the city’s Finance Office, located at 8400 Baltimore Avenue, suite 375, for $31.00, and are payable by check, cash, or credit card. The Non-Resident permit allows you to operate your vehicle in the state of Maryland and park on public or private property (with permission of the property owner). The Non-Resident permit will expire at the same time as your vehicle’s out-of-state registration, or a maximum of one (1) year from the issue date of the permit, whichever is earlier.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND
If your vehicle is displaying out-of-state license plates, you must apply in person at our City Hall offices to obtain both a Non-Resident permit, as well as to register your vehicle for a virtual parking permit for your area.
To apply for/register your vehicles for the necessary permits associated with your property address, you must either go online to collegepark.aimsparking.com, apply by mail to, or in person at our City Hall offices, located at 8400 Baltimore Avenue, suite 375, College Park, MD 20740 between the hours of 8am and 5pm Monday through Friday.
