The population of the District of Columbia has been growing for years. One big issue that comes with that growth is less street parking. Officials say there is simply not enough street parking in popular DC neighborhoods and in busy areas downtown.
To address some of the concerns about parking, DC Councilmembers listened to concerns from residents. Some residents suggested better residential parking zones, higher parking fees; even some thought changing the entire parking rules structure would be best.
One parking issue that is currently getting a lot attention has to do with out of town construction employees who are having a hard time finding legal parking. DC leaders are considering a plan that would give out of town workers temporary day passes.
