Proof of valid registration is required to obtain a sticker. The sticker is to be placed in the rear window of a car or other four-wheel vehicle. The sticker on motorcycles should be affixed to the rear fender. The parking sticker must be displayed at all times while parked on Chelsea property. Parking stickers will not be issued to any Resident if (a) the Owner of a unit is delinquent in the payment of any amounts due to the Association, (b) a lease for the rental of any Unit has not been given to the Building Manager, (c) a copy of the settlement sheet, deed or other evidence of ownership for any Owner has not been given to the Building Manager, or (d) a completed Unit Owner/Resident Information Form has not been given to the Building Manager.

If any guest or visitor will be parking on the parking lot overnight, the visitor/guest must obtain a guest/visitor parking permit from the front desk personnel which must be displayed in the front window of any guest/visitor vehicle which will be parked on the Building parking lot overnight.
