About the Residential and Employee Permit Parking Program
The Town of Los Gatos issues residential and employee parking permits for specific locations in Town. There are five Residential Parking Permit Districts close to downtown Los Gatos and there are two Employee Permit Districts. Parking permits are valid only for residents and
business employees in those specific districts and allow unlimited parking to permit holders in designated employee spaces within their specific district.
