Small Business Parking Bill Scheduled for June Hearing

June 5, 2017

UPDATE (6/5/2017) 2:21 pm: The bill has been withdrawn from consideration for the Committee’s hearing on June 21.

Enhanced parking sign limiting parking to area residents only.

The Small Business Parking Permit Act of 2017 has been scheduled for a hearing before the DC Council’s Committee on Transportation and the Environment. The hearing will take place at the Wilson Building on June 21, 2017, in Room 500 beginning at 1 p.m.

The bill was introduced on February 21, 2017, by at-large Councilmember Robert White, Ward 1 Councilmember Brianne Nadeau, and Ward 4 Councilmember Brandon Todd.

ANCs 1A, 1B, 1C, and 2F as well as the Kalorama Citizens Association, voted to oppose this legislation which proposes to extend RPP parking privileges to businesses with 10 employees or fewer that are located where they abut a block designated for residential permit parking. Qualifying businesses would be allowed to receive a parking pass for each employee to park on residential streets.

Anyone wishing to testify before the committee should contact Ms. Aukima Benjamin, Staff Assistant to the Committee on Transportation and the Environment, at (202) 724-8062 or via e-mail at abenjamin(at)dccouncil(dot)us.
