Moorefield Station On-Street Parking Management Area

Board to Refine Parking Ordinances

At its September 14, 2022, public hearing, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors is scheduled to take comments about proposed amendments to ordinances regulating county parking garages and surface lots, parking meters and residential parking management areas (PMAs). 

The public hearing will be held in the Board Room of the Loudoun County Government Center, 1 Harrison St. SE, in Leesburg, at 6:00 p.m. on September 14. Members of the public may provide input the Board on the agenda items. To learn more about how to provide input and how to sign up to speak in advance of the meeting, visit loudoun,gov/signuptospeak

The proposed amendments are intended to clarify language in the Codified Ordinances of Loudoun County.  One amendment to Chapter 482 (PDF), regarding county parking garages and surface lots, adds the term “on-street parking” to ensure the county’s ability to monitor and enforce violations in those facilities as well as in Parking Management Areas (PMAs). 

Another amendment clarifies that the county can issue “virtual” parking permits in addition to physical parking permits (Chapter 484) (PDF). That amendment includes other minor grammar and typo corrections. Amendments to Chapter 485 (PDF) establish eligibility requirements for obtaining annual residential parking permits in PMAs. 

PMAs, such as the one created for residents living in Moorefield on the south side of Ashburn Station, will prevent Metro patrons from parking cars in residential areas. The PMA is necessary because Metro’s Silver Line is expected to begin service to Ashburn Station later this year.

Board Adopts Amendments to Parking Meter Ordinance; Sets Rates for Parking Near Ashburn Metro Station

On April 5, 2022, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors has approved amendments to the county’s parking meter ordinance, establishing parking rates for metered and residential parking in the Moorefield Station neighborhoods and mixed use areas, adjacent to the Ashburn Metro Station.

The parking meter rates within the On-Street Parking Management Area in the Moorefield Station neighborhood are $1.25 per hour (off-peak hours) and $1.75 per hour (peak hours). Residents of communities within the Parking Management Area will have the option to purchase parking passes at a cost of $10 per year for each resident parking pass. Details of how the program will be administered will be determined at a future Board meeting. A smartphone mobile app will be used for metered parking in the mixed-use area, which will begin in advance of the start of Metro Rail service. The residential parking zone will be phased in once the details of the program are approved by the Board. 

Residents may continue to follow the Board’s process as the details of the residential parking zone are finalized:

Establishment of Parking Management Area: March 1

On March 1, 2022, the Board approved the establishment of an On-Street Parking Management Area in preparation for the arrival of Metrorail Silver Line service in Loudoun County, expected later in 2022. The area, in proximity to the Ashburn Metro Station, will consist of a new network of publicly maintained streets with approximately 400 current on-street parking spaces and is proposed to expand to more than 800 on-street spaces. The on-street parking program will mitigate the risk of Metrorail riders monopolizing the on-street parking spaces intended for residents and retail patrons,

Residents will be able to acquire a parking pass allowing them to park on public streets within the residential parking zone.  

The parking management program has two components:

  • Establishing the parking management area, which was done March 1, 2022.
  • Setting the rates for metered parking within the area, which were set April 5, 2022.

Community Meeting: January 27

To provide residents in the area and the greater community with more information about the proposed program, Loudoun County hosted a virtual community meeting on Thursday, January 27, 2022.
