Here’s a detail about parking in the neighborhood that I recently discovered. When ANC 1A voted to support the Enhanced Residential Parking Program that was later implemented last year, it actually included an option that allows residents living within ANC 1A (and most likely ANCs 1B & 1C) who live on blocks that are not currently in the RPP program to register their addresses in the system. The result is that the next time one gets a registration sticker for their car it will have “Zone 1″ on it instead of “No RPP”.
While this will probably not impact many households, we do still have a few streets in the community that are not part of the RPP program. But for those living on those blocks, if they have a vehicle they now have the option to get a parking sticker that will allow them to park on Zone 1 blocks if/when their blocks have no parking spots. However, if they do live on a block that constantly fills up, it would still be worthwhile to consider petitioning to be included in the RPP program.
In any event, its nice to have options.
For more details, you can contact your ANC Commissioner. A list of 1A Commissioners with contact information can be found here.
