The Residential Permit Parking Program is being updated and the City of Alexandria needs your feedback on the top issues to review.  
 
Between Dec. 14 and Jan. 4, please provide your thoughts on which issues are most important and should be reviewed under the RPP Refresh Project. Comments can be provided through an online questionnaire. The top 2-3 issues will be discussed in more detail at future subcommittee meetings as part of this update.  
 
Project Details 
It’s time for a refresh.  Introducing the City’s next parking policy project, RPP Refresh, which is a review of the existing Residential Permit Parking program, the program that manages on-street parking for residents.  As part of this project, city staff will be:
  • Compiling data about the current program
  • Researching how other cities manage residential parking
  • Getting feedback from residents like you about potential issues that should be addressed under this project and potential solutions

Some areas of improvement that are being considered under this project include: 

  • Improving the user experience  
  • Streamlining the process for creating or amending parking districts and consider changes to existing district boundaries
  • Identifying when and where a staff-initiated process may be useful
  • Refining existing restrictions (hours, days, length of parking) to better address parking issues and improve consistency across blocks and districts
  • Reviewing permit fees and potential limits on the number of permits
  • Identifying techniques to improve enforcement
  • Incorporating technology
