Grants Pass Downtown
Employee Parking Program

Parking Permit Application Process

 The City of Grants Pass will be accepting applications for downtown parking permits. Experience Grants Pass manages the process of registration and issuance of the permits to better serve your needs with the convenience of handling everything at the Downtown Welcome Center.

Applications will be accepted starting 9:00 am Monday March 9 through 4:00 pm Wednesday March 25, 2020. If we have more applicants than available spaces, permits will be issued by a lottery system – a random number will be assigned to each application, and the drawing of numbers will be conducted by the Parks & Community Development Director or designee and witnessed by a finance customer service department employee. Applicants will be notified by phone or email. Fees are payable when the permit is picked up. Recipients will have two weeks to pick up their permits before another application is drawn.

For the DUCK, REDWOOD and BROWN BEAR lots: Applicants may request a 6 month permit for $120.00 or a 12 month permit for $240.00. Permits will be valid effective April 1, 2020. 6 month permits will expire on September 30, 2020; 12 month permits will expire on March 31, 2021. Payments will be made payable to the City of Grants Pass.

**NEW FOR 2020 SPECIAL OFFER for the Salmon lot only. The City’s Downtown Parking Taskforce found that the Salmon Lot is consistently underutilized. As a result, the price for a permit in that lot will be reduced by half.

For the SALMON lot: Applicants may request a 6 month permit for $60.00 or a 12 month permit for $120.00. Permits will be valid effective April 1, 2020. 6 month permits will expire on September 30, 2020; 12 month permits will expire on March 31, 2021. Payments will be made payable to the City of Grants Pass. If the number of applications exceeds the amount of spaces, the lottery system (explained above) will take place.

  • City of Grants Pass Long Term Parking Program

    APPLICATIONS: Applications for long term parking spaces will be taken during a two week period preceding the expiration of the current permit period. Applicants for long term parking spaces must be an owner or an employee of a business or organization, or a resident, located within the Central Business District of Grants Pass. Two license plate numbers may be entered on one application if the applicant alternates vehicles, however each license plate may only appear on ONE application. ALLOCATION OF PERMITS: Permits are allocated by lottery. On the final business day of the permit period, a random number will be assigned to each application. Drawing of numbers will be conducted by the Parks & Community Development Director or designee and witnessed by a Finance Customer Service employee. Fees are payable when the permits are issued. PERMIT FEES: For the Duck, Redwood and Brown Bear parking lots, the long-term parking permit fee is $120 for six months or $240 for one year. For the Salmon lot, the long-term parking permit fee is $60 for six months or $120 for one year. PARKING LOT DESIGNATIONS: Each Parking Lot is designated by a different name. Parking permits are colored to coincide with the designated name for the parking lot. Parking permits are only valid in the color of the designated parking lot. A vehicle displaying a permit of any color that does not correspond with the lot name is subject to a citation and fine. Lot designations are as follows: Duck (Green), 7th & G Streets / Salmon (Pink), 5th & I Streets / Redwood (Red), 7th & I Streets / Brown Bear (Brown), SE I & 7th Streets. NUMBER OF PERMITS ISSUED: The number of permits issued in each designated parking lot will be equal to the number of long term spaces available in that lot. Individual long term spaces are NOT reserved. WEEKENDS, HOLIDAYS, CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY: Long term parking permits do not provide for parking on weekends or holidays. The City reserves the right to lease its long term parking lots for special events during those time periods. In addition, the long term parking permit does not provide for parking between Thanksgiving and Christmas each year. This is to allow maximum customer parking for holiday shoppers in the Downtown areas. PARKING LOT MAINTENANCE: From time to time, the City needs to perform parking lot maintenance that requires the lot or portions of it to be vacated. In these instances, permit holders will be given a minimum of 24 hour notice to move their vehicles. For purposes of this paragraph, notice may consist of a plainly visible sign posted in the parking lot, a flyer attached to the vehicle’s windshield, or written notice written or personally delivered to the permit holder. DISPLAY OF PERMITS: Permits must be clearly displayed by hanging from the inside rear view mirror. Vehicles parked in Long Term spaces not displaying a valid permit will be subject to a citation and fine. REVOCATION OF PERMIT: Long term parking permits may be canceled for repeated violations of the Grants Pass Uniform Traffic Code, City Parking Regulations, or non-payment of parking fines or program fees. HOLD HARMLESS: The City shall not be held responsible for any injury, loss, or damage to any person or to any vehicle or its contents sustained at any long term parking facility. By accepting a parking permit, the holder, its heirs, successors, or assigns shall hold the City harmless from any and all claims for personal injury to any person or any loss or damage to the vehicle or its contents.
