Parking Permit Program Overhaul

[ 0 ] October 29, 2020 |

This fall, County staff are moving to conclude the three-year process for the Residential Permit Parking (RPP) Review and introduce a new policy for consideration by the County Board by the end of 2020

  • Review the proposed RPP program on the project website – Includes a comparison chart, proposed administrative policies and procedures, and frequently asked questions
  • Share your feedback in a series of six short questionnaires on the County’s engagement website
  • For those who may feel more comfortable sharing feedback by phone, there is a toll-free comment line available – Dial 1-844-568-3777 to hear more about the proposed program and offer feedback by phone

 Highlights of the changes include:

  • Expanding the number of households eligible to petition for restrictions and join the program 
  • Linking the maximum number of annual permits that households in RPP zones can receive to whether that household has off-street parking and reduces the maximum number 
  • Providing more parking options for short-term visitors and service providers 
  • Introducing a limited number of permits for elementary, middle and high school employees, as well as employees who work at group homes 
  • Raising permit and pass fees to end general tax support for the program while offering a discount for low-income households 
  • Altering the petition process by removing the “out-of-area” test for vehicles parked on a petitioning street while raising the thresholds for parking occupancy and the share of households supporting the petition
