Parking Permit Program
Artesia's Parking Permit Program was developed to accommodate residents and property owners to preserve their ability to park in front or near their properties and/or homes.  Businesses may also apply for a discounted rate for the convenience of their employees.

During the City Hall's operating hours (Mon-Thurs 7:30 AM to 5 PM, Alternating Fridays 8 AM to 5 PM), the receptionist issues all permits including the temporary permits. Permits are issued based on the needs of the residents (ex: parties, family visitors over 5 members, etc.).

After hours, the Parking Enforcement Officers issue the temporary parking permits (no residential or visitor permits available after hours) based on their availability. Currently the City has three part-time officers working approximately 8 hours a day on Fridays through Sundays every week. In case parking officers are not available, the residents can send Emails to the Administrative Services Manager (provided below). Once the residents’ request is received, permits with the permit number and expiration will be sent to the requester via Email.  If the requester does not have a printer to print the permit, they can write the permit number and expiration on a sheet of paper and place it on the dashboard for display.
