Trouble Parking Near Your Logan Circle Home? Life May Get Easier: Figure 1
Early morning parking: A few spots available on R Street.

As the 14th Street Corridor fills up with restaurants, bars and new developments, finding street parking has become an increasingly difficult task for those that live in the neighborhood. Busy nights mean residents spiral farther and farther away from their home in search of an elusive spot. Ward 2 Councilman Jack Evans has come up with a plan to make life a little easier in that regard.

According to ANC 2F Commissioner Nick Barron, Evans has introduced a proposal that would make one side of several streets within the Logan Circle neighborhood “24-hour permit zones” six days put of the week, which essentially means that parking on those sides would be reserved for residents. The two-hour parking restrictions on the other side would remain in place for non-residents. Blocks can opt out if they present a petition signed by the majority of residents on a given street.

If adopted, the city may treat this as a test program for similar setups in other busy neighborhoods (sections of Capitol Hill already enforce similar rules). ANC 2F will be discussing the proposal at their monthly meeting this Wednesday.
