With the new year parking permits must be renewed. Third Ward contains Zone 2 (in two sections) and also Zone 2A; each zone has specific requirements. See this link for information on which zone you live in. (Not all Third Ward addresses fall in a permitted parking zone.)
Renewals require a current copy of each vehicle's registration. The vehicle registration address must fall within the permit zone and match the address on your driver's license, a recent utility bill, or a copy of your lease/deed. Event parking tags are free, permitting parking tags/stickers are $30 per vehicle.
Renewals must take place in person at the Park It! office, at 1440 South Tryon Street, Suite 108, just one block west of the LYNX Blue Line Bland Street Station.
