The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors may establish, amend or terminate a Residential Permit Parking District (RPPD) for any area within the county by application when it meets with the criteria. On this page, you will find a brief overview of the process to establish a new RPPD as outlined in Chapter 490 of the Loudoun County Code of Ordinances.
Criteria for Establishment
School Zones and/or Metrorail Stations: A district qualifies to establish a RPPD if it is within ½ mile (2,640 feet) from pedestrian entrances of an existing or proposed high school, university or college campus, or Metrorail station.
All Other Areas: A residential area qualifies to establish a RPPD if it has a minimum of 100 connected, or nearly connected on-street parking spaces at 20 linear feet per space, and at least:
75% of the land abutting each block is developed residential, and
75% of the total number of on-street parking spaces are regularly occupied by vehicles, with at least 50% of those spaces occupied by non-residents as authenticated by a survey performed by the Department of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure during hours of peak demand.
Communities: Residential addresses canbe added to an existing RPPD if they meet the criteria. The criteria differs for detached homes and duplexes, or attached town homes:
The single-family detached and/or duplexdwellinghas an address on a publicly-maintained street, or has a corner lot which abuts an existing RPPD.
Thesingle-family attached (town home) dwelling fronts a publicly-maintained street within the RPPD and does not access a private off-street parking lot.
If the proposed district meets with the criteria to establish a RPPD, the applicable Homeowners Association (HOA) or the affected group of residents (when the district is not serviced by the HOA) initiates the RPPD process with Loudoun County.
