The original item was published from April 6, 2022 3:39 PM to April 6, 2022 3:45 PM

The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors has approved amendments to the county’s parking meter ordinance, establishing parking rates for metered and residential parking in the Moorefield Station neighborhoods and mixed-use areas, adjacent to the Ashburn Metro Station. 

The parking meter rates within the On-Street Parking Management Area in the Moorefield Station neighborhood are $1.25 per hour (off-peak hours) and $1.75 per hour (peak hours). Residents of communities within the Parking Management Area will have the option to purchase parking passes at a cost of $10 per year for each resident parking pass. Details of how the program will be administered will be determined at a future Board meeting. A smartphone mobile app will be used for metered parking in the mixed-use area, which will begin in advance of the start of Metro Rail service. The residential parking zone will be phased in once the details of the program are approved by the Board. 

On-Street Parking Management Area    

During its March 1, 2022, meeting, the Board of Supervisors approved a new On-Street Parking Management Area in the Moorefield Station neighborhood in preparation for the opening of Metrorail’s Silver Line service in Loudoun County. The area includes metered parking and a residential permit parking zone. 

The parking areas are designed to promote the use of the Ashburn Station South garage by Metrorail riders in order to preserve neighborhood parking for use by current and future Moorefield Station residents and businesses and to discourage Metro riders and business patrons from parking in front of residential properties. Parking enforcement will be in effect from 6:00 am. to 6:00 p.m., seven days a week.

The Ashburn Station South garage will provide 1,540 parking spaces and has vehicular and pedestrian access to Silver Train Street and Croson Lane. The daily fee for parking in the garage is $4.95.

The On-Street Parking Management Area specific to the Moorefield Station area includes the public roads generally bordered by but not including Loudoun County Parkway, Old Ryan Road and Vinegar Hill Drive. The area consists of a new network of publicly maintained streets, which currently includes approximately 400 on-street parking spaces and is proposed to expand with future development to more than 800 on-street spaces.
