No Visitor Parking Passes for Georgetown
The passes allow guests to park for more than two hours on Residential Permit Parking blocks.
In July, residents throughout the District received new visitor parking passes, but not Georgetown. Most of Ward 2 did not receive the passes that allow guests to park for more than the two hours normally allowed on Residential Permit Parking (RPP) blocks.
In all the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) distributed some 71,000 2012/2013 visitor passes. According to DDOT, the passes went to neighborhoods in which the Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) requested passes.
Ward 2 Council member Jack Evans' office said it would generally defer to the ANCs to determine whether an area wanted the passes. Georgetown's ANC is still waiting to define its RPP zones before requesting passes.
Residents in the following areas received visitor's passes:
- Ward 1: Residents in ANCs 1A, 1B and 1C and residents on RPP blocks in ANC 1D
- All RPP blocks in the immediate vicinity around the Howard Theater bounded by: Florida Avenue, NW (north); New Jersey Avenue, NW (east); P Street, NW (south); 11th Street, NW (west)
- Ward 3: Residents on RPP blocks
- Ward 4: Residents on RPP blocks
- Ward 5: Residents on RPP blocks
- Ward 6: Residents on RPP blocks in the Ballpark Area bounded by Pennsylvania Avenue, SE (north); 11th Street, SE (east); Potomac Avenue, SW (south); 9th Street, SW (west).
Glover Park residents and others in Ward 3 should have received a pass. DDOT advises, "If you live in one of these areas, but did not receive a Visitor Parking Pass please call (202) 673-6813 between 8:15 a.m. and 4:45 p.m., Monday through Friday, to request a pass. If you are eligible, DDOT will mail a pass to your address."
