Next Steps

SDOT is collecting feedback on a potential RPZ through August 19, 2018. Depending on feedback, a formal RPZ proposal will be released to the community in fall 2018 along with a public hearing. Unpaid time limit and individual space changes will also be finalized in fall 2018.

Project Background

As Seattle continues to grow, so too does the demand for access and parking in the City's busiest areas, including our urban villages and neighborhood business districts like West Seattle. Specific to West Seattle, SDOT also received a formal request for a new Restricted Parking Zone. SDOT is reviewing parking and access in the area with local stakeholders to determine potential improvements to area parking management.
