On-street parking permits

 

    The Eastwoods neighborhood is adjacent to the University of Texas at Austin which has an enrollment of over 50,000 students, faculty and staff. Even with the University's excellent shuttle bus system, it is still necessary for some to drive their cars to school and park close to campus. In the past, that created parking issues for the neighborhoods surrounding the University. Residents often had no place to park in the street - even in front of their own homes. With the narrowness of central Austin's older streets, emergency service vehicles (fire trucks and ambulances) found it difficult to navigate in those congested neighborhoods.

 

    At the request of those neighborhoods, the City of Austin created an on-street resident permit-parking plan. This plan designates certain streets as resident permit-parking only on Mondays through Fridays, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. You can see these permit-only parking signs throughout the neighborhood.

 

    Permits are issued to Eastwood residents by the Eastwoods Neighborhood Association and cost $40 per year for up to four window stickers - or two window stickers and two temporary visitor parking tags.

 

Your previous year's permits are valid until January 31 of each year.
