As part of the program changes to the existing resident sticker program the City of Salem's Collector's Office is prepared to start issuing new resident parking stickers for the six different resident only parking zones throughout the City. As a result of many concerns expressed by City Councillors and residents, we have implemented changes to make this program more effective.
The existing resident sticker parking zones will remain unchanged, so all residents that currently have a sticker will still be eligible to receive one. The cost of the new sticker is $10, and it will be valid for a two-year period. The resident parking sticker will now include a vehicle registration (license plate) number and expiration date on the sticker itself to ensure compliance with the program. Visitor placards will also include an expiration date and the vehicle registration number. Each household will continue to be eligible to receive up to 2 visitor placards at cost of one dollar ($1) a piece.
The administration of the program will be transferred from the City Clerk's Office to the Collector's Office. The Collector's office is located on the first floor of City Hall in Room #4. The registration and renewal of the resident stickers will be on a rolling basis by zone and staggered throughout the year. The following staggered schedule for sticker registration and renewal has been established:
April 15 thru May 14 – Zone F Residents
May 15 thru June 14 – Zone A and B Residents
June 15 thru July 15 – Zones C, D, and E Residents
In addition to obtaining your sticker in person at the Collector's Office, residents will now be able to purchase stickers by mail by downloading the application on line on the Collector's Office home page and mailing the completed form with a copy of your (1) license, (2) vehicle registration, (3) a utility bill or a copy of a lease, and a check made payable to the City of Salem to the Collector's Office, 93 Washington Street, Salem, MA 01970. Completed applications can also be left in the drop box in front of City Hall after business hours. Your new resident sticker will be sent to you via first class mail.
Enforcement efforts in resident sticker zones will also be improved, as a portion of the sticker fees will be directed to provide increased enforcement personnel. Enforcement within your zone will begin the day after the last date of registration scheduled for your zone. Old stickers and old visitor passes will no longer be valid, so please remember to obtain a new sticker for your vehicle.
