Proposed Lackawanna / 53rd Parking Zone

After we discussed the parking situation near Greenbelt metro station in September 14 session, the Council will discuss the issue again in next Wednesday’s worksession.

Some residents who reside at the East end of Lackawanna Street are asking us to consider establishing a new residential parking permit restricted zone.

The residents are concerned about other residents from the existing Zone 3 who park their cars near the East end of Lackawanna Street to be closer to the Metro. The complainants also are concerned about commuters who use the streets near the intersection of 53rd Avenue and Lackawanna Street, and the dead end section, as a “Kiss and Ride” drop off and pick up spot for the Metro station.

Based on the residents’ feedback, we’re proposing the new zone to include a part of Lackawanna St (between 52nd and 53rd) and a part of 53rd Avenue (between 52nd and Lackawanna).

Following September 14 worksession,  we discussed this issue at North College Park Civic Association’s October 11 meeting. The NCPCA members adopted a resolution unanimously supporting the proposed zone.

Please see the new proposed zone in the left map (shown in green).
