Parking Management Plan

Takoma Park is undertaking a study of parking issues across the city that includes 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 study includes surveys, grant-funded research and mapping, and additional data collection and community input.

Comments for the record may be submitted online for distribution to the City Council or during public comment period during the City Council meetings.

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.

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. To date, the project includes a survey with nearly 300 responses from residents, visitors, and businesses.
