Residential Parking Permit Program Application

  1. Residential Parking Permit Application
  2. The Program
    In September 1986, the Missoula City Council adopted the University Area Residential Permit Parking Program in the area immediately surrounding the campus of The University of Montana. The purpose of this District was to ensure safety for its residents and to reduce serious parking overload problems. After the residential parking district was created, the authority to establish such a district and its constitutionality was challenged by ASUM et al. On 10-21-93, the Montana Supreme Court ruled in favor of the City and confirmed the City’s position.
