Consideration of Heavy Vehicle Parking Restrictions in Commercial Areas

Due to community concerns and complaints, the City of Alexandria is considering introducing an ordinance to limit parking of heavy vehicles (greater than 12,000 pounds and/or longer than 30 feet in length) to two hours in commercial areas when not actively loading or unloading.

A proposed ordinance to restrict heavy vehicle parking is tentatively scheduled to be considered by the Traffic and Parking Board at their virtual public hearing on Monday January 25, 2021 at 7:00PM. The docket and the Zoom meeting link and registration information will be posted on Traffic and Parking Board website prior to the meeting.

The recommendation by the Traffic and Parking Board will go to City Council for their consideration later this spring, tentatively March 2021. Check this page for updates of dates, times, and docket information for any planned meetings or hearings on this subject.
