On the new Residential pass, the first two digits of the serial number is the property Zone number. The new Commercial pass identifies the business type.
Important information about Re-Entry passes
Purpose: The pass aids security, speeds re-entry, and provides traffic control at a time when we must keep traffic to a minimum. The pass allows persons in a vehicle to return to perform property damage assessment.
Pass Limits: To meet the purposes of security, re-entry and traffic control:
(Residential) a strict limit of two (2) passes per address.
(Commercial) businesses will be issued only enough commercial passes to facilitate the damage assessment process, ordinarily one (1) pass.
Pass Holders Responsibility: Due to the security aspects of the pass, all persons issued a pass are responsible to ensure their pass does not fall into the wrong or irresponsible hands.
Lost/Destroyed Passes: In the unusual event we have to evacuate, people without a pass can return with proper credentials. Access via credentialing is slower, so it’s recommended every household get a pass and take care of it.
Pass Expiration: The city makes an independent decision each year whether to re-use passes or issue new ones. There will be press releases and emails when the decision is made. Keep your pass until you know it is no longer valid.
