Parking permits

Village residents who own their home (year round and seasonal) in the village may obtain a free parking permit that allows you to park in any legal parking space in the downtown area.  Any additional permits can be purchased at $25.00.  Parking permits may be obtained at the village hall.

Parking tags will not be issued to another individual for you. You will be required to show proof of residency to obtain a parking tag. Identification showing a post office box in the village of sylvan beach is not sufficient proof of residency.  You must show something that identifies your street address (example: utility bill).

  • Owning property that you do not reside at or owning vacant land in the village does not qualify as residency.
  • Non-village residents may purchase a parking permit to park in any legal village public parking space in the downtown area for $25.00 for the season.
  • Tickets will be issued if not displayed or renewed.
