As you know, SDOT has been studying parking in Capitol Hill over the past year and we are preparing to implement new parking measures on certain streets. One of the more visible changes will be the expansion of two existing RPZs, Zones 4 and 21, in the next few months. Click here for a map and the days and hours that the zone will be in effect.
The Restricted Parking Zone (RPZ) Program was created to help ease parking congestion in residential neighborhoods, while balancing the needs of all people to be able to use the public streets. RPZs help neighborhoods deal with non-residential impacts through signed time limits from which vehicles displaying a valid RPZ permit are exempt. As SDOT works to improve parking in neighborhoods, we occasionally add RPZs.
This is just one of several changes we’re implementing in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, as part of SDOT’s Community Parking Program. Please click here for more information about the Community Parking Program.
