New Residential Pay By Phone Parking
Restrictions in Effect on Six New Blocks
Six more blocks have been approved and posted with residential pay by phone signage. These restrictions require any vehicle without a District 1 or District 2 residential parking permit (depending on the specific block) to pay to park on the block for up to 2 hours. The full list of blocks with these restrictions are:
- 100, 200, and 500 blocks of Prince Street
- 100 block of Duke Street
- 200 and 600 blocks of Wolfe Street
- 200 and 300 blocks of S. Lee Street
- 200 block of S. Pitt Street
- 100 and 200 blocks of Cameron Street
New signage has been installed noting the requirement to pay, hours and days of restriction, and payment options. Parkers choosing to park on the block can use the City’s pay-by-phone app, Pango, or purchase a parking receipt from a meter on an adjacent block.
These restrictions are allowed through the City’s
Residential Pay by Phone pilot program, which was approved by City Council in
November 2016. The goal of the pilot program is to provide adequate on-street
parking for residents by encouraging non-residential parkers to park in metered
or garage spaces by eliminating free two-hour parking on the residential
blocks. City staff will evaluate before and after parking conditions on the
blocks with these restrictions to determine if this is an effective tool that
could be expanded to other areas.
More information about the pilot program can be found at www.alexandriava.gov/Parking under "Overview of Parking Restrictions and Districts." Interested residents can submit a petition to staff for review and consideration before the Traffic and Parking Board.
