The City of Alexandria is seeking feedback on the 72-hour rule exemption.

Per Alexandria Code, no vehicle may park in a given space on a public street for more than 72 consecutive hours, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. The rule, known as the “72-hour rule,” applies to everyone, even residents parking in front of their homes or residents with parking permit stickers. On May 13, 2017, City Council approved a pilot program to allow residents to apply for an exemption to the 72-hour rule to park on the street within 1/8 mile of their residence for up to 14 days. The exemption provision has a specific sunset date of November 1, 2019.

Staff are evaluating the success of the exemption provision and determining if it should be continued, modified or discontinued when the pilot program expires.

Please provide your thoughts on the 72-hour rule exemption via online questionnaire through May 19.
