To cancel the use and charges for additional/second vehicles registered, please notify the office and return the respective permit. The office will cease and adjust the monthly parking fee once the permit is returned to CTC’s office, prorated to the day it was received by the office.

Methods for Permit Return:

For all return method options, please indicate the permit's corresponding CTC address, such as placing it inside a labeled envelope.

  • Submit in After-Hours Dropbox: Our external dropbox is located outside between the two building entrances near the Ward 9 playground, which is available 24 hours/7 days a week. There is also a dropbox located inside the Community Center building on CTC’s office window near the stairs, accessible when the building is open per CTC and CCCC business hours.
  • Submit In-Office: Return the parking permit in CTC’s office during business hours.
  • Mail to CTC Office: Mail the permit to our office, addressed to CTC at 1250 Fifield Ave, Falcon Heights, MN 55108.

Visitor Parking

CTC residents’ visitors can park on property, free of charge, in the designated visitor parking spaces (signage posted throughout co-op) while visiting with the resident. All visitor vehicles need a valid and visible visitor parking permit for any amount of time parked at CTC. Residents can acquire Visitor Parking Permits for their visitors as needed, plus find detailed policy requirements, through their RentCafe account under 'Resident Resources.' 

Seasonal Paid Parking

CTC offers paid parking in the north lot to residents, near Ward 1 and Commonwealth Ave. This is a great, year-round option for those traveling for an extended amount of time, as they do not need to worry about moving your vehicle or getting towed, such as during emerging events like snow emergencies.
