Parking In Casper

Please find a summary of parking regulations in the City of Casper. For a complete accounting of the regulations, please look up Chapter 10 of the city's Municipal Code.

Snow Regulations

The ordinance designates certain streets to be Snow Emergency Routes. The intent is to make snow clearing faster and more effective. This allows snow plows to clear the road all the way to the curb.



Under the rules, no parking will be allowed on snow routes during a snow emergency. When four or more inches of snow is predicted, the City can declare a snow emergency. Once the emergency is declared, residents will be given four hours to move their vehicles from parking spaces along the streets of these designated snow routes.





Snow routes will be identified with signs, and a current listing can be found in the city's Parking Regulations Manual.





Downtown Parking



Parking downtown is limited to two hours in any one space or block face between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM on weekdays.  This limit applies to all spaces, including handicap parking unless they are permanent, reserved spaces.  A block face is defined as a portion of a street or highway between to intersections, including all on-street parking along both sides of the street or highway within such boundaries.  Parking on the street is prohibited from 3 a.m. to 6 a.m., seven days a week. 



Recreational Vehicles and Trailers



The owner of a recreational vehicle must get a special permit if they want to park their RV on the street for more than five days in a 30 day period. The permit requires that the owner get the permission of the nearby homeowners. The permits only apply to the space immediately in front of the owner's house. Permits cannot be issued for homes on arterial or collector streets. These rules also apply to trailers that are more than 20 feet long, and to trailers that are 4.5 feet high.



Parkway Parking



The "parkway" is the area between the curb and the sidewalk. Parking on the parkway is generally not allowed, but residents can apply for a parkway parking permit. The permit costs $25, and it requires that the owner have the approval of other nearby homeowners.
