From DDOT’s Web site:
“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will host a public meeting on Monday, December 7 to update the community on the Ward 1 Columbia Heights Performance Based Parking Pilot Zone. The meeting will also be an opportunity for residents, businesses, churches and other stakeholders to provide feedback on the parking operations implemented under the Performance Based Parking Pilot Zone Act of 2008.
Columbia Heights is one of two commercial areas in the District where DDOT has established a special pilot parking program. The goal is to protect neighborhood parking, spur regular turnover of metered spaces around commercial establishments, promote other modes of transportation and reduce congestion using a variety of tools including variable parking meter rates and time limits.
At the meeting DDOT will discuss the progress of the program and the topics will include:
* An update on the revenue generated from multi-space meters.
* An update on signage improvements and non-automotive transportation modifications scheduled for the pilot zone (using meter revenue).
* Recommendations from community stakeholders for 2010.
What: Public Meeting on Performance Based Parking Pilot
When: Monday, December 7, 2009, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
