Last month we told you about the lengthy treks that Swedish/Providence employees are taking to find parking. Now the residential parking zone (RPZ) has expanded again to include the 700 block of 21st and the two blocks of E. Columbia from 20th to 22nd.
Check out the difference, starting with the before pic of the 2000 block of E. Columbia:
Now that the new parking signs have gone up, it’s totally empty:
And as you might expect, many of the parkers have just moved north to the 800 block of 22nd where there’s not any signs. If you’re in one of those blocks and want to be added to the RPZ, you just need to get approval of 60% of the neighbors on your block and then follow the instructions here to complete the process:http://www.seattle.gov/transportation/parking/parkingrpz_how. You’ll then get two free stickers to put on your vehicles and leave the commuters to find a new unmarked block.
