Note: a Permanent Disability Parking Permit may also be issued to an applicant who presents proof of having been issued license plates for the disabled by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles. The applicant must provide the local issuing agent with a copy of the MV-664.1 that was used to obtain the license plates or copy of the applicant’s vehicle registration.

Permit Period: Permanent Permits are issued in fixed 3-year periods. The current period expires on September 30, 2024. A renewal form and instructions were mailed to you in June 2021. (Please advise the Town Clerk’s office immediately if  you did not receive your renewal letter, if your Mailing Address changes or if your Disability Parking Permit is lost or stolen). 

Temporary Disability Parking Permits

Application & Permit Period: Eligibility for a Temporary Disability Parking Permit is based on the temporary inability to walk without the aid of an assisting device. By law an “assisting devices shall include, but not be limited to, wheelchairs, crutches, walkers, canes, or any other assisting device that is required for ambulation.” Temporary Permits are issued for a period of up to 6-months. A Medical Certifier’s statement is required for each 6-month extension thereafter. 

NYS, US and Canada: Permanent and Temporary Parking Permits are valid everywhere in New York State where there are designated parking spaces for people with disabilities. Permits are also valid in all other states and Canadian provinces.
