Growing Demand for Parking 

Some neighborhoods have competition for a limited number of on-street parking spaces. Growing demand for parking is attributable to several factors such as increased vehicle ownership, increased residential occupancy, and increases in nearby employment and commercial/retail activity.

The Residential Parking Program (RPP) is a management tool used to mitigate adverse and chronic levels of commuter or non-resident parking along streets with adjacent residential properties. All vehicles parked in a designated Residential Parking Zone (RPZ) must adhere to the posted regulations or risk being issued a corrective action.  A fee based parking permit is required to park for more than two-hours in an RPZ.

While this program helps manage a limited parking resource, it will not guarantee or assign specific spaces to households and their vehicles, nor will it solve neighborhood nuisance and security issues.  The regulation of parking through this RPP shall be the least restrictive that best mitigates the documented problem.
