At the dawn of the pandemic and for many months after, the City of Mill Valley’s Resident Shopper Vehicle Permit (RSVP) program, which allows residents of Mill Valley and nearby towns to park for free at a metered space as a way to promote downtown businesses, was largely dormant, as was parking enforcement.
Enforcement has long since returned, and the program remains active, providing both convenience for shoppers and diners but also parking revenue for the Mill Valley Police Department.
City officials put the 2022 RSVP stickers on sale this month, both available online or at the Mill Valley Police Department at 1 Hamilton Drive, Monday-Thursday, 8am to 5pm and Friday 8am to 4pm. Permits for Mill Valley residents are $50.00 each for the 1st or 2nd vehicle and $70 each for the 3rd or 4th vehicle. Permits are $70 for non-residents in zip codes 9965, 94920 and 94925.
The RSVP program is designed to make it convenient for Mill Valley and other Marin residents to shop, eat and visit downtown Mill Valley. We appreciate your support of our local restaurants and businesses! “We hope that current permit holders will continue to utilize their permits to show support to our local businesses,” MVPD officials said in announcing the permits.
