Permit Parking Zone S is Here

by

In late May, residents in the inner Buckman area voted to begin a new Area Parking Permit Program (APPP) named Zone S. Fifty-eight residents were notified and 37 returned ballots, of those 30 voted in favor of the new zone. This summer the signs will be posted for a 2-hour visitor limit from 7 am to 6 pm Monday–Friday and a 90-minute visitor limit from 6 pm–midnight all nights. Residents who enroll in the program will pay $60 annually for each vehicle. Residents may purchase extra permits for frequent guests or purchase one-day scratch-off cards (a book of 10 for $10). No one has to purchase permits.  The Inner Buckman Parking Committee will wait until the new rules go into effect before deciding to add more block faces to the list below.  Inner Buckman has become a popular area to Park ‘n Ride and the impact of the businesses and events at Washington High School has added to the parking challenge.

Currently, the following blocks are part of Zone S:

  • SE 14th East Side: 300–600 blocks
  • SE 14th West Side: 300 block
  • SE Oak South Side: 1400 blockS
  • SE 15th West Side: 600 block
  • SE Alder North Side: 1400 block
