Community Access and Parking Program

The Community Access and Parking Program is SDOT’s effort to improve on-street parking management in Seattle’s neighborhood business districts and nearby residential areas.

You live, work, and play in the neighborhood. You know what the parking challenges are. Together, we can find a balance between the competing needs of businesses, residents, and customers. And, we can work toward a sustainable transportation system.

Through the program, SDOT works with community members to identify on-street parking challenges and opportunities, develop parking recommendations, and implement changes. Outcomes may include new time-limit signs, load zonespaid parkingrestricted parking zones, and bicycle parking.

Check out our brochure for more information on the planning process, parking tools, and a map of neighborhood business districts.

Program Goals

  • Provide access for customers and loading
  • Support residential parking access
  • Support a sustainable transportation system

To reach these goals, we’ve identified the following guiding principles:

  • MANAGE : parking is a scarce resource with many competing demands – SDOT’s role is to manage this public good wisely (learn more about our curbspace priorities).
  • ENGAGE : creatively engage all aspects of the community in a meaningful planning process.
  • COORDINATE : organize parking planning efforts around transit service improvements, bus rapid transit (BRT) routes, other SDOT construction projects, and neighborhood planning processes.
  • BE EQUITABLE : incorporate new neighborhoods where we have not studied parking in the past; study areas throughout the city.
  • EVALUATE : Return to neighborhoods where we have implemented parking management plans to evaluate, assess, and update previous work.
