A letter arrived in the mail at JDLand HQ today (how old school!) from DDOT director Emeka Moneme, saying that DDOT "has heard your concerns regarding the hours of enforcement for the enhanced Residential Parking Permit (RPP) program in your neighborhood. I am pleased to announce that as a result of the success of our campaign to encourage transit use and based upon community feedback, DDOT has decided to modify the hours of enforcement for all residential streets within the following boundaries[,]" which is basically all residential streets east of South Capitol, west of 9th St., SE, and south of Pennsylvania Avenue. Beginning June 23, the hours on these residential streets in Near Southeast and Capitol Hill were changed to Monday through Saturday from 7 am to 9:30 pm, with no enforcement on Sundays. West of South Capitol Street, in Southwest, RPP rules remain the same (7 am to midnight seven days a week), except for ending these restrictions on M Street SW.
Also, according to the updated Multispace Meters Rates and Hours of Operation sheet from DDOT, parking at the green multispace kiosks in Near Southeast is no longer off-limits during stadium events. It now costs $2 for the first hour, $8 for the second hour, $8 for the third, and $2 for the fourth. This equals the cost of most of the cash lots operating near the ballpark. (See that sheet for the updated rules for Pennsylvania Avenue SE and Barracks Row.) I haven't paid close enough attention over the past few weeks to see if this meter change has been in effect since before June 23--but clearly the ample parking and well-flowing traffic near the ballpark has lessened the original fears that allowing on-street parking north of the ballpark would bring a crunch of drivers circling looking for spaces. ($4 gas might be helping that, too.)
I've posted on my Stadium Parking page the updated map from DDOT showing these changes and the explanations of the parking restrictions around the ballpark as they now stand, after these alterations. I suppose I should get off the sofa and go see if the street signs here on my Capitol Hill residential block have been updated to show these new hours, but I'm lazy tonight. Still worn out from last night's fast-forwarding extravaganza, I guess.

Since I know you all want to know this.... From a Tommy Wells press release: "On Tuesday, July 1, Council voted to approve the 'Southwest Waterfront Financing Act of 2008.' The legislation provides $198 million in a combination of tax increment financing (TIF) and payment in-lieu of taxes (PILOT) financing for the long awaited Southwest Waterfront project. [...] The legislation provides the necessary financing for the public infrastructure on the Waterfront; just part of the overall $1.5 billion project. The public investment enables the project to move forward with the neighborhood's vision for a waterfront that will rival the excitement of other major metropolitan areas and will deliver investment, jobs, affordable housing and community services to the residents who have driven this public process for almost 15 years. [...] The legislation will come before Council for a final vote on July 15, 2008. A companion piece of legislation to address land disposition issues is awaiting a public hearing by the Committees on Economic Development and Workforce Development and Government Operations."
