Loudoun Supervisors Set On-Street Ashburn Metro Parking Plan

County supervisors have approved the on-street parking management plan around in Moorefield Station near the Ashburn Metro Station, seeking to push Metro riders to the station’s parking garage rather than neighborhood streets.

The plan creates metered parking in the future mixed use development areas, and a parking permit zone for residents to help preserve on-street parking for residents. Currently the area, generally bordered by Loudoun County Parkway, Old Ryan Road and Vinegar Hill Drive, includes about 400 on-street parking spaces, with development plans including expanding to more than 800 on-street spaces.

The Board of Supervisors is working to amend the county’s parking meter ordinance to establish parking rates in the Moorefield Station neighborhood at $1.25 per hour off-peak and $1.75 per hour during peak hours. The board is also considering a $10 annual fee for each resident parking pass.

Parking enforcement will be in effect from 6 am. to 6 p.m., seven days a week. Only electronic payments by debit or credit card are accepted for on-street parking and permits. 

The plan is hoped to keep Metrorail riders out of residents’ parking spaces and push them into the Ashburn Station South garage, which provides 1,540 parking spaces and costs $4.95 per day.

    “The board is also considering a $10 annual fee for each resident parking pass.”

    Wrong answer. If you are a resident, you should not have to pay for long-term passes unless you need an excess number of them. They should be available from the homeowners’ association at no cost to residents, and they should have some form of short-term passes available for residents’ guests to be able to host events at their homes.

    So the “solution” here is to charge residents to park on the streets in their own neighborhoods. Considering the residents of the HOA paid for the streets to begin with this hardly seems fair. Government does nothing well. Remember this the next time you go to the polls and vote.
