Yes, you need an RPP to park longer than two hours. Even if there was some sort of grace period for new residents how in the world would a parking enforcement person know you are moving and not some random out of state car?

You can either take your lease to the local police station and get a temporary parking pass, find parking on an unzoned street, or pay for off street parking in a lot or a garage.

Really simple stuff and I can't imagine it's not easily found with a Google search or in the FAQ.

The MPD doesn’t give out visitor permits anymore, at least according to the DMV website. Or is that different from a temp pass?

I think you can get one online and print it out yourself. Or the police station has computers you can use to print out a visitors permit. It should be good for two weeks

Your submission appears to be asking about parking.

Your first resources are available here and here.

Unless you are in a residential area of the city, there is no such thing as reliably free and easy long-term parking. Please read parking signs carefully, even locals get confused sometimes.

Useful apps for parking include ParkMobile for street parking and SpotHero for garage spaces.

Visiting a friend in the city? Ask them for a free visitor parking pass from any MPD station.

Did you receive a ticket? Are you guilty? If so, pay it. Pictures and incorrect information doesn't matter.

you can get a temporary parking permit or visitors pass online in the meantime! unsure of the exact link, but if you google around you can find it.

It's a holiday weekend. They won't be ticketing Sunday or Monday
