Ward 2 Councilman Jack Evans wants public input on possible changes to the visitor parking program.
In July, residents throughout the District received new visitor parking passes, which allow guests to park for more than the two hours normally allowed on Residential Permit Parking (RPP) blocks. Most of Ward 2 did not receive the passes in the mail, though they are able to obtain them by stopping by the local police district headquarters.
The District Department of Transportation is considering how to implement a new visitor parking program in Ward 2.
"I have sent a letter to each Ward 2 Advisory Neighborhood Commission asking that they hold a discussion on this matter at an upcoming meeting, vote on it, and let me know their thoughts by the end of October," Evans said in his newsletter. "I encourage all Ward 2 residents to email or call your ANC representative to let your feelings be known, as I will be listening closely to the ANCs on this matter."
Georgetown's ANC meets Monday, Oct. 1 at 6:30 p.m. You can contact your commissioner before then via email, over the phone or next time you see them at Safeway. Their contact info is available online.
When Patch ran a poll in August, 83 percent of respondents said they would prefer to receive the passes in the mail. What do you think?
