Where Can I Park?
The maps on the right provide locations of garages, surface lots and meters throughout the city.
Temporary No Parking Signs
To avoid being ticketed and towed unnecessarily, check for temporary No Parking signs. Residents and business owners may request temporary No Parking signs to accommodate moving and delivery vehicles on non-metered streets by contacting parking Control Supervisor Bev Overbey at 314-290-8493 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Temporary No Parking signs should be requested at least 48 hours in advance.
Clayton's Public Works Department issues permits to rent parking meters for $20 a day. The Parking Meter Rental Application is available in PDF format on the How Can I Rent a Parking Meter item in Frequently Asked Questions. Please note meter rentals require a minimum of 24 hour advanced notice.
