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. 

To find out if you live on an existing CPRA-zoned street, please click here.
