Today at 11 am (both on DC Cable 13 and via streaming video) there will be a hearing on the new "Ward 6 Residential Parking Protection Pilot Act of 2009." I haven't written about it before now because I haven't been clear whether there's really much of an impact from it on Near Southeast, and in fact, according to Tommy Wells's blog, this new bill mainly will be bringing to all of Ward 6 some of the enhanced parking rules that went into effect last year in Near Southeast, Southwest, and areas of Capitol Hill near Barracks Row.
The one new item in the bill for Near Southeast is to start charging multi-vehicle households higher amounts for more than one residential parking permit. One permit will still cost $15 a year; however, the second permit in the same household would be $50 a year, and any permits beyond that would be $100 per year. (See Tommy's FAQ for more.)
The one question I haven't seen addressed is whether apartment buildings in Ward 6 will now be allowed to get RPP stickers. Via Greater Greater Washington, the Ward 1 bill also currently working its way through the council specifically says that all Ward 1 zone residents will be eligible for RPP stickers, but the Ward 6 bill only says that all residents will receive visitor pass placards.

The area around Capitol Hill Tower is zoned not as residential, but commercial. Why, I dont know. Will the new parking policy change that?

Just wanted to comment that DDOT is putting up new impromptu "no parking" rules around NEar SE on game days, that are not - seemingly - part of the RPP program. LOTS of tickets have been issued to residents who are confused...

Want to comment that the residents at the Capitol Hill Tower were mislead by DDOT prior to the installation of the meters. At a February 2008 meeting, Rick Rybeck said that CHT residents would be able to secure RPP status for street parking. Tommy Wells was also at the meeting.

Frankly, the Pilot Plan would be more successful if all of the meters were fully functioning (and accepting credit cards as they should be). The meters are not generating revenue from customers of local businesses (with the exception of some baseball fans). Instead, the revenue is being generated from visitors of residents of SE.

Before the 2009 bill is passed, Tommy Wells should release the revenue figures and show where that money is being used to benefit Near SE, as that was his promise.


JD says: (5/20/09 2:06 PM)
The revenue numbers from the first part of 2008:

"There are a few numbers to pass along--so far in 2008 (from the start of the program on March 26 through the end of October) the Ward 6 pilot zone grossed a bit over $235,000 in parking fees, with it splitting pretty evenly between the 80 game days ($118k, averaging $1,650 per day) and the other non-game days ($115k, averaging $1,300 per day)."


JD says: (5/20/09 2:11 PM)
Should add that nothing's been announced that I've seen about where the revenue's been spent, though I should remind that:

"the legislation that created the pilot spells out that, initially, 60 percent of the program revenue will be put toward the repayment of the cost of the meters, with 20 percent of the revenue to be used "solely for the purpose of non-automobile transportation improvements in the zone." (The other 20 percent goes to the DDOT's operating fund.) This means that there will already be some dollars available at the end of 2008 toward improvements.

"In a few years, once the meters are paid in full, only five percent of the revenue goes toward meter and signage upkeep in the zone, and 75 percent goes to non-automobile transportation improvements in the zone, such as bike racks, sidewalk repair, etc."


Kate says: (5/20/09 4:37 PM)
FYI, I have an email in to a guy at DDOT on the "emergency no parking" signs w/ dates and times - I got his contact info from Wells's office, who said he was the ballpark parking guy. He told them that the new signs are not supposed to apply to those w/ a Zone 6 permit, but I saw someone w/ a Zone 6 visitor pass get a ticket near 2nd and K this weekend for parking in an emergency no parking zone. So I'm looking for some clarity (in writing!). Will pass info on to JD if/when I get it!


James says: (5/21/09 3:02 PM)
Thanks JD for the revenue figures.

I would guess that the overwhelming majority of the "$235,000 in parking fees" came from parking tickets and towing charges, not from meter payments.

They should really come clean with the real figures (meter revenue), because it is misleading to cite a figure that was enhanced by:
1) DDOT incompetence in posting last-minute no-parking signs;
2) Malfunctioning meters that do not accept credit card or bill payments;
3) Unintelligible hours or operation on the meters and signs which often conflict each other.
