I am a resident of Durham. Do I need a permit to park my vehicle on-street?

The City of Durham’s residential parking permits, otherwise known as a Controlled Parking Residential Area (CPRA) permit, is a program designed to give residents a better chance of finding on-street parking spaces in their neighborhoods. This program governs parking restrictions in six residential communities. Please click here to find out if you live on an existing CPRA zoned street.

For more information, including directions on how to apply and visitor parking, visit our CPRA page here.
