Accessible parking permits for Geneseo residents are available at no charge from the Town Clerk's Office. In order to apply for a permit, you and your doctor must complete an Application for a Parking Permit for Persons With Severe Disabilities. You must also bring the driver's license of the person to whom the permit was issued, unless that person does not have a driver's license.
Upon receipt of the application, the Town Clerk will issue a Temporary or Permanent Parking Permit. A Temporary Parking Permit can be issued for up to 6 months, at the discretion of the doctor. A Permanent Parking Permit is issued for a five year period. At the end of five years, the parking permit may be renewed at the Town Clerk's office, provided the permit holder still resides in the town.
