Can I park in any lot that is marked “Permit Parking Only”?

You can park in Permit Lots, but you will need to obtain a monthly parking permit for Canonsburg Police Parking Enforcement.  You can contact an Officer directly at 724-745-8020 X 522.  If we are not available please leave a voicemail and we will return the call as soon as possible.  If you choose to park in a lot marked “Permit Parking Only”, the violation fee is $30 if you receive a ticket while parked.  All parking lots are video surveillance monitored to ensure compliance and for your safety.

What if I am only running in a local business for 5 minutes to pick up my lunch etc?

All persons parking a vehicle in a monitored paid parking spot are expected to pay for their parking regardless of time spent in that spot.  Parking lots are only $.50 to park for an hour which is very reasonable based on the national average for hourly parking fees which is $5.34 per hour for rural communities across the United States.  For your convenience, Rite Aid pays for four spots that are directly located in front of their store.  These four spots are clearly marked with signage to differentiate them from paid parking spots located in that lot.
