Renewal applications, originally due Aug. 31, will be accepted through Sept. 9.
Commuters who miss the deadline risk being relegated to the waiting list for permits, which are in high demand.
Parking rates are being kept flat for the upcoming permit year, which runs from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30, 2012.
The wait list for Greenwich Plaza, coveted for its central location and parking garage, is estimated to be six years.
There are 720 permits were issued for Greenwich Plaza as of October 2010, with another 900 people on the wait list.
An annual permit for the garage costs $488, the same amount as the Soundview Drive commuter lot in the downtown. All other lots cost $279 for the year, including Island Beach, Horseneck, Cos Cob, Riverside, Old Greenwich and the Town Hall parking garage. The exception is West End Avenue lot in Old Greenwich, which is $100.
The total number of commuter parking spaces in town is 2,690.
Renewal forms went out earlier this summer to all permit holders, who can mail them to the town or do the transaction online at www.buymypermit.com/greenwich. A 3.5 percent processing fee will be tacked on to online renewals.
West End Avenue is the only lot that does not currently have a wait list.
