The Neighborhood Parking Program allows residents of city center neighborhoods that experience overflow parking from other areas to consistently access on-street parking near their residences and provide on-street parking for their guests.
The program protects and improves the quality of life and character in the neighborhoods by reducing the amount of overflow parking, discouraging cut-through traffic, and ensuring adequate parking spaces for citizens who live there. The program also generates revenue that can be used for reinvestment in transportation-related improvements in the area.
Property owners in city center neighborhoods may opt in to the program, selecting from three options for parking restrictions that are enforced by Park Tucson:
- Monday to Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm restrictions - annual permit costs $48
- Monday to Friday, 6:00pm to 6:00am and Saturday and Sunday 24 hours restrictions - annual permit costs $48
- 24/7 restrictions - annual permit costs $72

Neighborhood Reinvestment Program
A portion of permit and metered parking revenue generated within each participating neighborhood is made available to make transportation-related improvements to sidewalk infrastructure, right-of-way landscaping, and traffic mitigation. Earned funds are carried over from year to year until reinvested in the neighborhood. Participating neighborhood associations may propose projects to be funded by this program.
