Take SDOT’s Survey on the Restricted Parking Zone (RPZ) Program
Seattle’s Restricted Parking Zone (RPZ) program was created in 1979 to prevent commuters to major institutions like hospitals and universities from parking on neighboring residential streets, and to balance the needs of all people using public streets.
An RPZ is an area with posted restrictions on parking (such as 2-hour time limits); vehicles displaying a valid RPZ permit are exempt from these restrictions. Permits are designed to serve residents adjacent to major traffic generators; in some areas businesses are also eligible for permits.
Seattle has grown significantly since the RPZ program was started. SDOT would like to know how the program can respond to changing conditions and priorities so it can better serve people using Seattle’s streets.
The survey will be open until March 31, 2016. For questions about the survey, please contact Becky Edmonds at RPZPolicyReview@seattle.gov or (206) 684-5104. For more information about the RPZ program, visit the SDOT RPZ webpage or fact sheet.
This survey should take about 5 minutes. Thank you for your time!
