Old Town Parking Zones

NEW! Paid Parking Zone C - Lighthouse Park and Streets North of the Railroad Tracks as of June 1, 2015

In places where parking is limited and at a premium, a paid parking program is a common tool used to encourage parking space turn over and to pay for the services needed to maintain parks and streets.
  • The paid parking zone only applies to areas north of the railroad tracks.
  • The new Downtown Paid Parking Program will charge an hourly rate for parking at Lighthouse Park, and on Front Street, Park Avenue, and on First Street. 
  • Resident park passes are available, exempting residents from paying the hourly charge at Lighthouse Park. Passes are available at City Hall and Rosehill Community Center free of charge. 
  • The revenue from the program will be used to pay for parking enforcement costs and Lighthouse Park maintenance and operations, with any additional revenue used to fund pedestrian improvements, implementation of the Downtown Waterfront Master Plan and/or for a multi-use parking garage.
Parking Fees:
A $2.00/hour fee will be charged in Lighthouse Park during park hours.  For Front Street, Park Avenue and 1st Street, paid parking hours are 8:00 am - 8:00 pm.

Resident Parking Pass

Residential Zone Parking Permits
Mukilteo Municipal Code provides for the creation of residential parking permit zones (MMC 10.08.090).  Permits in these zones are available only to residents living in the zone and not to businesses.  Four such zones have been established.  Click on the following links for a map of each zone:
  • Zone A - single family residential areas north of 5th street on both sides of SR525
  • Zone B - Downtown Business District
  • Whidbey Lane - across the street from Kamiak High School (107th & 108th Streets SW., 52nd and 53rd Ave. W.)
  • Westridge - single family residences on Westridge Drive and Vista Drive
Zone A permits exempt vehicles from the "No Parking 2:30-4:30 a.m." parking restriction.  Residents of Zone A may obtain permits permanently assigned to 2 vehicles and 1 guest permit.

Zone B permits exempt vehicles from both the "No Parking 2:30-4:30 a.m." and "4-hour Parking" restrictions.  Residents of Zone B may obtain 1 permit permanently assigned to a vehicle and 1 guest permit.

The Whidbey Lane residential parking permit is for residents whose houses front on streets with the "No Parking 7:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m." restriction.  The permit would exempt vehicles from that restriction.  Residents may obtain a maximum of 4 permanent parking permits plus 2 guest permits.

The Westridge residential parking permit is for residents whose houses front or access the streets with the "No Parking 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m." restriction.   The permit exempts vehicles from that restriction.  Residents may obtain a maximum of 4 permanent parking permits plus 2 guest permits.

Employee Parking Permits
Mukilteo Municipal Code provides for the creation of employee parking permit zones (MMC 10.08.095).  One employee parking permit zone has been established in the Downtown Business District and Waterfront Mixed Use District.  Businesses in these two zoning districts are eligible to obtain parking permits for their employees.  Vehicles with the permits are exempt from the 4-hour parking limit.  However, the permits can only be used at specified locations.  Open this map to see where those locations are.
Some of the basic regulations for employee parking permits are:
  • Business must have an active Mukilteo business license
  • Permits are issued to the employer who is responsible for distributing them to their employees
  • Permits can only be used in employees' vehicles when they are working for the business
  • A maximum of 20 permits may be issued to any single business
There is no fee for employee parking permits.  Only business owners, not individual employees, are eligible to apply for employee parking permits.  Click here for an application.
