I participate in the Parking Permit Program. How do I renew my permits?
Permits are renewed on a quarterly basis (January, April, July, October) and permit holders must submit a new parking permit application to the City each quarter to renew their parking permits. The City sends out an email reminder to all permit holders who have provided an email address on their previous permit applications approximately two weeks in advance of the next quarterly renewal date. The email reminder will contain information on the date that the City will start selling new permits and/or renewing existing permits and will include links to permit applications and parking policies and procedures guidelines.

Permits can be applied for and paid for at La Mesa City Hall, located at 8130 Allison Avenue or applications and payments can be mailed to:

City of La Mesa
Downtown Operations/Parking Control
8130 Allison Avenue
La Mesa, CA 91942

Permit holders can check the City's website for updated information on sales and renewals at the Parking Permit Program page.

Please note that there is no grace period for expired permits after the start of a new quarter. If you have not yet received your placards and/or stickers by the start of the new quarter, please place your payment receipt on your dash until your placard/sticker arrives. Also, existing permits renewed after the first month of the quarter are not eligible for pro-rated fees.
