New Parking Regulations
Neighborhood parking problems can affect even the calmest neighborhood’s quality of life. I am pleased to report on some recent code changes that the Board of Supervisors has put in place following public hearings.
- Parking is prohibited within 20 feet of an intersection or crosswalk.
- Taxi and limousines are limited to one per dwelling and must be registered in Virginia.
- Most commercial vehicles may not park on public streets.
- Vehicles parked on a public street must now have both front and back license plates and display a current safety inspection sticker.
- Vehicles not registered in Virginia must now pay an out-of-state license tax of $100 on the Fairfax County Personal Property bill. This fee is assessed annually as long as the vehicle remains registered outside Virginia. Because DMV registration is less than $100, this is an incentive for vehicles to be properly registered.
- The fine for parking large commercial vehicles on residential streets has been raised from $25 to $100.
Please call us if you have any questions or concerns about these new regulations.
Lee District Community Parking District
Following a year of community input and study, Lee District joined Mount Vernon and Reston in approving a community-wide parking district (CPD). The CPD that went into effect in November 2009 prohibits boats and RVs from parking on residential streets.
Please note that this restriction only applies to state roads and that residents may continue to park their boats land RVs in their driveways or in storage facilities.
