Old Town Parking

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Knight & Gardner Realty

I currently have a listing in Old Town on a walking lane (no off street parking) and I keep getting asked where to park.  So I say on the street, but then there have been some more questions about what restrictions there are pertaining to parking on the street.  For instance if you bought the home as a vacation home could you leave a car parked on the street when you weren’t in Key West.   I made some calls and this is what I found, but remember these rules really apply only to Old Town because although they might apply elsewhere they are not enforced in New Town.


No one may park their car on the street for more than 72 hours.  The only place you can leave your car longer would be the parking garage at Grinnell and Caroline where long term parking is $107.25/ month.  If you live in a house with no off street parking, and only metered parking in front, you can get a permit after showing a driver’s license with the Old Town address, a utility bill in your name, and the registration of your car. This gives you the right to park on your block only and not pay the meter; the permit costs $106.25/year.

If you are a resident of Monroe County you can park in any of the Old Town residential parking spots as long as you have Monroe County license plates.  If you live in Monroe county but do not have Monroe license plates you can get a permit for $6.25/year and park in the residential spots.

So there it is.  I now know how to answer the question about Old Town parking.
