The SFMTA To Consider Residential Permit Parking Reforms On June 5, 2018. At its June 5th meeting, the SFMTA Board of Directors will consider proposed changes to San Francisco’s Residential Parking Permit (RPP) program. The meeting will be held at San Francisco City Hall (Room 400) @ 1P.M.
The SFMTA recently completed a comprehensive evaluation of the program, which combined extensive data collection and analysis with a robust public engagement process. As part of this evaluation, the SFMTA conducted more than a dozen community workshops, six open houses and meetings with neighborhood and business associations throughout the city to solicit community feedback about a range of possible reform measures.
The list of proposed RPP Program changes to the Transportation Code are:
• Simplify the Transportation Code language for designating, rescinding or modifying a residential parking permit area;
• Limit the number of residential parking permits in all newly established RPP Areas:
o no more than one permit per person and no more than two permits per address
o up to 4 permits allowed if there is available on-street parking on the block
o exempt permits issued for health care or childcare workers from the 2 per household limit
• Make it easier for new parents to obtain in-home care by eliminating the petition process for an in-home care provider;
• Allow a resident licensed to operate a family child care home to obtain a permit for use by an assistant care provider working at the home; and
• Add a “paid+permit” tool to the parking management toolkit, where visitors parking in RPP areas would be required to pay, rather than adhere to posted time limits. Drivers with valid permits would continue to park for free all day.
