Parking Permits

The city offers two different types of parking permits. The Downtown District Parking Permit applies for downtown city lots (and some on-street spaces) designated with color-coded permit parking. The Residential Parking Permit applies for pre-approved locations outside the core downtown where time-restricted, school day, or overnight restrictions are in place.

Please note availability for either permit is limited. A parking permit still requires vehicles to be parked in a legal space. All permits shall be hung on the rear-view mirror with the date side facing out. Make sure to remove any expired permits, as improper display of the permit may result in a ticket.

Updates to Parking Permits

The city will be implementing a new parking management system.  As part of the new system permits will be license plate based, instead of using window hangers.  Check out the link below for more information.


A map of the permit locations is shown on the left. Neenah offers six different colored permit areas available for purchase. Availability for each of the permit areas is limited.

To find which of the permit areas are available for your situation, contact the Community Development Department by phone at 920-886-6125 or visit in person at City Hall. Click here to download the Permit Parking Map.


You can purchase permits either on a monthly or on a quarterly basis. A general permit is $22 per month or $66 per quarter. The permit period starts on the beginning of each calendar month or quarter, not the date of purchase. Permits are not prorated, however on after 15th of each month, you may purchase a monthly permit for half price.

How to Apply

To apply, visit the Treasurer’s Office at City Hall. If you are an employee, the treasurer will need to verify your name and place of work. If you are a resident, the treasurer will need to verify your name and home address. All outstanding parking tickets must also be paid.

Residential Parking Permits
