A Potomac Yard neighborhood could be getting its own residential permit parking district ahead of the opening of the nearby Potomac Yard Metro station.
At a Traffic and Parking Board meeting scheduled for 7 p.m. tonight (Monday), the board will review a staff recommendation that a new parkin district be created in the Potomac Greens neighborhood.
What form that district takes isn’t defined yet, but most respondents to a city survey said they supported the standard parkin restrictions: 2-hour parking 8 a.m.-11 p.m. Monday-Saturday except for permit holders.
“The responses received met the Code requirements for creating a new district,” the staff report said. “Staff received 155 responses from a total of 227 ballot letters sent, for a 68% response rate, exceeding the required 50% response threshold. Of these, 95% indicated they support the creation of the new district, exceeding the 60% required support threshold to proceed.
The staff report said the goal of the project is to protect the neighborhood from the impact of commuters looking for parking before boarding the Metro.
“The intent of this proposed RPP District is to mitigate the impact of commuter parking in the neighborhood that may arise due to its proximity to the future Potomac Yard Metro Station, which is anticipated to open in fall 2022,” the report said.
