Residential Parking Permit Program
Residents who live within the free timed parking district as identified on the map below, may apply for exemption starting Monday, February 22, 2021. To apply, complete the application and email to Town Manager Kirstyn Jovanovich. In addition, email proof of residency and valid vehicle registration(s). All eligible vehicles must be up-to-date on the Town’s vehicle license fee program. The Residential Parking Permit Program is limited to residents who live within the timed parking district and who do not have off-street parking or limited off-street parking. Applications and supporting documentation may also be submitted in-person at Town Hall, 314 Mill Street, M-F, 9 am – 4 pm.
Visitor parking passes will be available to residents who live within the timed parking district for their guests. More information will be posted by March 1.
On September 15, 2020, the Planning Commission presented the Town Council with a proposal for the establishment of a free timed parking program covering what is colloquially referred to as Occoquan’s historic and business districts. At its October 6, 2020 meeting, the Town Council instructed staff to proceed with the necessary steps to implement such a program sometime in early 2021. On January 5, 2021, Town Council formally approved a plan to establish a free Timed Parking District. View the plan here.
The intent of the free Timed Parking District is to increase the availability of on-street parking spaces, reduce the practice of long-term parking in the district, and reduce non-patron use of prime business parking during peak business hours within the district. The District will designate 4-hour and 8-hour timed parking spots, as well as up to eight 20-minute spots. All public parking within the Town remains free.
The free Timed Parking District will go into effect by March 1, with education, signage installation and launch of the residential permit program occurring throughout the implementation phase. As we develop and implement the program, updated information will be provided on this webpage and through our normal communication channels.
