The City of SeaTac is implementing a Permit Parking Program to help manage parking in congested neighborhoods.  Resident feedback regarding a lack of parking on their streets led to the programs development.

Starting Spring, 2019, the City will launch the Permit Parking Program.  The program affects the McMicken Neighborhood.  Please click here for a map of the parking zone.

Residents or business owners who want to park for longer than 3 hours in the parking zone will need to register their vehicles.
