City of Sarasota Logo Where Urban amenities meet Small- town living



The Valet Permit program goal is to minumize the impact of public parking spaces by permitting private operators to offer valet parking and pand park the vehicles on private spaces. In so doing, public parking spaces remain available to the general public.

A Valet company may request either an annual permit, for uses of more than 2 days, or Special Event permit for uses of 2 days or less. Anyvalet operation that drives on public right of way, streets, parking spaces, etc., must receive an approved permit issued through the City's Parking Division. Valet permits are authorized under Chapter 33 of the City Code, section 33-120 through 33-125.
