Resolution to Amend the Criteria for the Residential Parking Program


Attached for your review and approval is a resolution to amend the Criteria for Residential Parking Program (RPP). The program allows vehicles owned by residents to park in a RPP neighborhood for the posted time limit without being ticketed.


The City of Ann Arbor first initiated the RPP program in 1989 as a program that would serve as a solution to many of the parking problems in residential neighborhoods. This program allows residents with a valid RPP permit related to their specific RPP district to be exempt from the posted time limits.


The Criteria for Residential Parking program, were last updated in February of 2006. These amended changes to the criteria clarify and harmonize the language in the criteria to streamline City processes.
