ALEXANDRIA, VA – On March 16, City Council approved an ordinance to make the Residential Pay by Phone Pilot Program a permanent program within the Special Parking District Area (blocks east of Washington Street to the Potomac River, between Princess Street and Wolfe Street).
In order to be eligible for the program, a block must be on a block with meters, adjacent to a metered block, or adjacent to an approved residential pay by phone block. In addition, the block must already have residential permit parking signage posted (e.g. timed restrictions noting District 1 or 2 vehicles are exempt).
Parkers without a district permit who choose to park on the block can use the City’s pay-by-phone app, ParkMobile, call the ParkMobile toll-free number at 877.727.5457, or purchase a receipt from a meter on an adjacent block. City staff are continuing to explore alternative payment methods and will present recommendations to the Traffic and Parking Board at a public hearing on Monday, April 22.
More information about the program can be found at alexandriava.gov/Parking. Interested residents can submit a petition to staff for review and consideration before the Traffic and Parking Board. Please contact Megan Oleynik at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
