If you have a resident permit and park in a public parking lot, during enforcement hours, you must pay for your parking at a public lot pay station.
If you have a resident permit and park in on-street parking (green or purple zones), during enforcement hours, you must pay for your parking at an on-street pay station.

The red zone is displayed in red on the Downtown Parking Map.
