Link light rail station neighborhood parking plans: Columbia City
Updated July 2011
In July 2009, SDOT installed a new restricted parking zone (RPZ), Zone 29, around the Columbia City station area to support business and residential parking needs.
In 2010, SDOT checked in with businesses and residents, and also conducted a follow-up parking study to see whether on-street parking use changed. Read the 2010 report here.
If you have any questions, would like to invite us to a meeting, or want to share your feedback, please contact Ruth Harper at (206) 684-4103 or firstname.lastname@example.org
How to get a permit
Zone 29 permits expire on October 31, 2011. If you received a permit within the past two years, SDOT will send you a formal renewal notice in the mail.
If you do not have a permit, click here for a permit application.
RPZ permits are good for a 2-year cycle. Decals are $65 each, a guest permit is $30, and low-income permits are available for $10. Learn more about permit fees and how to apply for a low-income permit.

Zone 29 Facts
Community Input Incorporated Into Light Rail Parking Plans
2008 parking data
Throughout fall 2008, SDOT collected information about utilization, which is how many cars are parked on the streets around the light rail stations. This information, summarized in the Link Station Area Parking Study, is being used two ways: to help design proposals to manage on-street parking and to create a baseline that on-street parking conditions can be compared to in the future.
