Resident Only signage will be placed on 50% of the legal residential spaces located in designated Residential Permit Parking (RPP) program blocks. These Resident Only signs will only allow Zone 1 RPP sticker and ANC 1B visitor pass holders to park for more than two hours during the hours of RPP enforcement.
Additionally, each household located within ANC 1B is eligible for:
- One annual visitor’s parking pass per ANC 1B household. This pass will be issued by DDOT and mailed to residents.
- Registration in the RPP program for any vehicle not currently in the program and registered to an address on a registered RPP block in ANC 1B. The fee for this Zone 1 RPP sticker is $35.00 per vehicle.
Vehicles may be registered immediately in the RPP program through the Department of Motor Vehicles. Visitor passes will be mailed no later than May 2012.
About Residential Permit Parking and Enhanced Residential Permit Parking
The Residential Permit Parking (RPP) program was established in the 1970’s to protect neighborhoods and ensure residents could find parking on their blocks. The RPP program limits on-street parking to participating residents living on designated blocks, and parking is limited to two hours during the hours of operation for those vehicles without the appropriate zone RPP sticker. Additional information about RPP program is available online.
- Although Enhanced Residential Permit Parking (ERPP) applies to an entire ANC area, it only enhances blocks that currently have RPP. Residents on blocks without RPP need to petition to be included in the program.
- ERPP enhances existing RPP blocks by reserving one side of the block for Ward 1 residents during enforcement hours. The other side of the block will be open to all residents seeking parking, with current restrictions being applicable.
