DC residents can now apply for their 2015 visitor parking permits — or at least most of them can.

City residents living in wards 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6 are eligible for the program, according to DDOT, as are the lucky residents of ANC 2F. The rest of Ward 2 is ineligible unless their ANCs decide to lobby for a rule change, DDOT says. Ward 2 Councilman Jack Evans’ opposition to the plan, based on feedback from ANCs in the ward, means the rest of the residents in 2 were excluded.

ANC 2F managed to become part of the program in May after months of debate.

The visitor parking permit program was previously “opt out,” meaning everyone living in a home eligible for a residential parking permit was automatically included. This reportedly led to residents selling the permits to commuters and other abuses that created more parking havoc on the city’s most congested streets.

This year, participants eligible for a permit can preregister online and will receive one in December. The permit is valid for one calendar year.
