Parking Zone Change Proposals
Note: updated on 4/30/2013. See flyer link, below.
The FDA parking committee has been working with The City of Richmond, VCU, West Grace Street Association, West Avenue Improvement Association and Monument Avenue Preservation Society to discuss needed changes to the current Restricted Parking Zones 1 and 2. There is consensus that the Fan has a shortage of available on-street parking. Parking permits exceed the number of on-street parking spaces available, however the number of decals and visitor passes issued in the current fiscal year (May 2012 through April 2013) was 2,662, down 14% from the 3,097 issued in the prior year. VCU has also made progress opening access to their parking decks to be available for students & faculty who do not live on campus.
We have reviewed numerous options and are recommending our next step to increase restrictions in a small area in Zone 1 to reduce the available hours at night and on week-ends for those vehicles without a valid decal or guest pass. The proposed changes will not affect anyone holding a valid Zone 1 parking decal or guest pass.
We are communicating this proposed change to the residents, businesses and other interested parties in the immediate area affected by thie change. If successful in reducing non-permitted vehicles parking in this area, we will consider expanding this type of restriction.
Please read the attached notice for details of the proposed change. Stay tuned to FanFare and the FDA website for more details once they become available. And please feel free to e-mail any questions or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your input,
