The program allows residents to set parking restriction days and times so that they control

non-resident parking on the neighborhood streets.

5. How can we get the program for our neighborhood?

Contact Dianne Harris at the Revenue Authority at 301-955-0787.

We will provide you with an information packet. The program is voluntary, and petition

based. A petition must be circulated to collect the signatures of least 60% of the

neighborhood homeowners or lease holders. There is one signature for each address. Each signature is a vote in favor of the program.

6. How long does it take to get our neighborhood designated as a zone?

After the petition is completed then submitted for review, the Revenue Authority will

schedule a public hearing within 90 days of receipt of the petition. Public notice of the

hearing will be published in a County newspaper. The Authority will mail out a notice to

each address within the proposed Residential Parking Permit zone.

Within sixty days of the public hearing, the Authority will approve, deny, or modify the

residential parking permit zone. After approval, the Authority will install that stipulate the parking restrictions and exceptions.

Two-year parking permits shall be renewed every two years and Visitor parking permits

Are issued every 72 hours and can be renewed.

In case of a denial by the Authority, the petitioners may (1) appeal the decision of the

Authority to the Executive Director or (2) by showing a petition listing 90% of the property owners or lease holders in the proposed RPP zone.

9. How do we terminate the program if we want to withdraw?

After at least twelve months in operation, the Authority may accept petitions signed by at least 60% of the residential property owners or lease holders in the permit parking area for termination of the RPP area. The Authority shall follow the same public hearing and notification procedure used for establishing a zone.

10. How do I sign up for the program after zone is established?

After the public hearing, we send out the Board Decision Letter. The letter includes

instructions and contact information for assistance. Sign up is automated and can be done online or over the telephone. The vehicle registration

address is the primary documentation for auto approval to get your permits. Applications that do not meet this requirement must provide other proof of residency stipulated by program guidelines.
