Parking Permit Program Hearing Feb 20

[ 0 ] February 15, 2021 |
Residential Permit Parking Program – At its February 20 Board Meeting, The County Board will hold a public hearing and consider adopting a revised Residential Permit Parking Program, following a three-year public review process. The proposed changes include:

  • fair and equitable management of parking demand and achieving a balance between maximizing on-street parking use with protecting residents from unreasonable burdens in gaining access to their property;
  • expanding the number of households eligible to petition for restrictions and join the program;
  • two options for setting the maximum number of annual permits that households in RPP zones can receive;
  • more options for short-term visitors and service providers;
  • limited number of permits for elementary, middle, and high school employees, and employees who work at group homes;
  • increased permit and pass fees to end general tax support for the program, while offering a discount for low-income households;
  • removing the “out of area test for the petition process, while raising the thresholds for parking occupancy and the share of households supporting the petition;
  • grandfathering only current RPP restriction locations and hours.

Arlington Ridge Civic Association Executive Board has sent a letter to the Transportation and Planning Commissions as well as Arlington County Board with its concerns about the revised program. We are joining other civic associations throughout the County who also have concerns.
