Neighborhood Meeting to Discuss Proposed Residential Parking Zone in the Upper Queen Anne Hill Neighborhood

SEATTLE-The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) encourages area residents and businesses to attend a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 29, 2007 at The Seattle Public Library, Queen Anne Branch (400 W. Garfield St), to discuss the proposed installation of a new Residential Parking Zone (RPZ) in the Upper Queen Anne Hill neighborhood.

RPZ’s are used to ease parking congestion in residential neighborhoods by discouraging long-term parking by non-residents.

The proposed boundaries of the RPZ are:

• W Lee St to W Blaine St

• 3rd Ave W to Queen Anne Ave

The purpose of this meeting is to provide residents and businesses with the results of SDOT’s recent parking study and to provide further information regarding the RPZ process. Also, during the meeting, a neighborhood committee will be organized to help design the zone so it will best meet the parking needs of the community.

For more information about the City of Seattle’s RPZ program, please visit Seattle Transportation’s web site at www.seattle.gov/transportation/rpzprogram.

The Seattle Department of Transportation builds, maintains and operates Seattle's $8 billion transportation infrastructure. To further Mayor Nickels’ goal to get Seattle moving, the department manages short- and long-term investments in streets, bridges, pavement and trees, that better connect the city with the region.
