Parking Management Plan

Takoma Park is reviewing parking issues across the city, including meters, handicap parking, commercial vehicle parking, residential parking permit (RPP) zones, enforcement, City Code and regulations, and parking hot spots. It is a comprehensive and interdepartmental effort aimed at modernizing and streamlining existing programs while preparing for ongoing developments and technological changes that affect how and where people are going in Takoma Park. The City-wide initiative includes surveys, grant-funded research and mapping, and additional data collection and community input.

Current Project Status

Staff is developing information and recommendations for City-wide parking policies to be presented to the public for comment and feedback. After incorporating community input, the recommendations will be presented to Council. Council is considering the establishment of a Parking Task Force (July 10, 2019) made up of community members to review the recommendations and plan community outreach .

The City received a technical assistance grant from MWCOG  in 2016. The consultants made a presentation to City Council on June 15, 2016 and submitted a report. The table below includes the 2016 documents, maps, and survey results.
