RPPP Drawbacks

Although there are many advantages associated with a RPPP, we would also like to point out some of the disadvantages. Please read the following carefully:

  1. 1. Creating a new RPPP area can take several months and requires City Council to adopt a revision to City Ordinance Section 36-157. Traditional parking restrictions can be implemented much quicker.
  2. 2. A petition must be approved by at least 70% of the residents per block. Seventy percent of the residents can impose their parking desires on the other thirty percent.
  3. 3. ‘Intruder’ parking MUST EXIST. Traffic studies are performed to verify ‘intruder’ parking. Most neighborhoods do not qualify.
  4. 4. Parking Permits must be purchased. You are required to purchase a $10.00 Resident Permit for every vehicle you park on the street during restricted hours. Visitor Permits are needed for visitors and service vehicles. They cost $5.00 each and are limited to three per household.
  5. 5. If you park on the street without a permit, the Police Department will issue a parking citation.
  6. 6. There is a possibility that permits may be lost or stolen. New permits must be purchased to replace them.
