City of Lancaster Undertakes Residential Permit Parking (RPP) Program Study

May 10, 2024 | Department of Public Works

The City of Lancaster is conducting a study of its Residential Permit Parking (RPP) Program beginning this month. To increase parking access and better manage congestion, the study will utilize public feedback and review applicable City code, policies, and programs to identify potential improvements to the RPP program.

The study is scheduled to be completed by fall of 2024, with implementation of recommendations occurring at the end of 2024 and into 2025. Consulting firm Kimely-Horn is assisting the Department of Public Works with the study.

All residents, business owners, and contractors in the City of Lancaster are invited to provide feedback and learn more about the RPP study through Engage Lancaster, the City’s public engagement platform. The survey will be available online during the month of May.
