Apply for Accessible Parking in Front of Residence

Request an accessible parking permit on the street in front of a residence.


City residents can apply for an accessible parking permit to have a parking place in front of their residence or building.

Be aware that failure to follow the rules of the parking program can result in the removal of the accessible parking space.

What to Expect

Once you are deemed eligible for the space, the St. Louis City Street Department will install residential accessible parking signs approximately two to four weeks from the date of submission. You will be sent a set of permits to put on your vehicle.

Any person who has been denied a Residential Disabled Parking Space Permit may appeal in writing to the Office on the Disabled which will, in turn, forward the appeal to a special panel of the Advisory Council on the Disabled within two weeks. The special panel of the Advisory Council shall have final authority to grant or deny the appeal.
