Councilmember Tommy Wells and DDOT Will Co-Host a Public Meeting About Performance Based Parking on H Street (Washington, D.C.)
Councilmember Tommy Wells and representatives from the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) are co-hosting a public meeting on February 16 to discuss the Performance Based Parking program that is planned for the H Street corridor in northeast Washington. The program has two main goals: 1) improve the availability of customer parking on H Street, and 2) reduce parking spillover into adjacent residential streets. The program is scheduled to start in March 2012 and will apply to H Street, NE from 3rd to 15th Streets. At the meeting, DDOT will present a proposal for implementing performance based parking on the H Street, NE for public review and comment. Community members are encouraged to participate in this meeting to help shape the implementation plan for this program. The information materials that will be presented at this meeting will also be made available online at http://1.usa.gov/AEw0fv under Related Documents following the February 16 meeting. Following this meeting, a 30-day review and comment period will be made available to community stakeholders before DDOT implements the program. To review the implementation plan and submit comments please visit http://1.usa.gov/AEw0fv after February 16.
About Performance Based Parking Performance based parking is a curbside management strategy that DDOT first introduced as a pilot in the Ballpark District of Ward 6 in March 2008. Performance based parking works by adjusting the rates and/or the time restrictions on metered blocks while protecting the parking supply on surrounding residential and mixed used corridors through increased residential parking protections and enforcement.
