Parking Permits for People with Disabilities
The City Clerk's Office issues New York State Parking Permits for People with Disabilities to City of Ithaca residents only. If you live outside of the City, you can obtain this permit from the Clerk of the municipality you reside in.
To obtain a permit you must complete Part I of the permit application and have your Medical Doctor, Doctor of Osteopathy, or Doctor of Podiatry Medicine either complete Part II, the medical certification, or provide you with a note detailing the nature of your disability, and whether it is a temporary or permanent disability. If your disability is temporary the doctor should also state how long you will need the permit.
You can download and print this application.
Permanent parking permits must be renewed every five years; new doctor statements are not necessary.
Permits are valid throughout New York State; however, some organizations, universities and colleges may require additional permits for long term parking. Permits are issued to the applicant, not a vehicle, so they are valid for whatever vehicle the applicant is riding in.
There is no fee for the permit.
For further information regarding these permits, please contact the City Clerk's Office at (607) 274-6570.
