On-street parking changes in Wallingford? SDOT wants to hear from you!

We recently completed a parking study of residential streets in Wallingford surrounding N 45th St./NE 45th St., in response to a request from the Wallingford Community Council for new and/or expanded Restricted Parking Zones (RPZs). We’re sharing the results of the study with the community in Wallingford and are seeking feedback on potential on-street parking changes.

What’s an RPZ?

Restricted Parking Zones are used to limit commuter parking on nearby residential streets, while still allowing short-term parking for people visiting these neighborhood business districts. RPZs do this through signed time limits that:

  • Are usually in effect during the day (for example, from 7 AM – 6 PM).
  • Can be on either one or both sides of the street.
  • Allow short-term visitor parking.
  • Allow residents to park longer than the posted time limit via permit.
  • Allow unrestricted parking when the signs are not in effect.

What happens next? We want to hear from you!

We’re collecting feedback through November 30, 2017, by survey, email, and over the phone and plan to present a draft proposal to the community in early 2018.

Fill out the survey ? here ?. If you live in the neighborhood, the information might already be in your mailbox! You can also get more detailed information about the Wallingford study results and recent RPZ work in other neighborhoods.
