Board to Refine Parking Ordinances

Posted on September 12, 2022 at 11:50 AM by Nancy McCormick

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.

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