**Note: For residents seeking to form a new RP3 zone area only, this does not affect existing zones**
Staff has received direction to temporarily suspend the expansion of the Residential Parking Permit Program (RP3). The existing RP3 zones will remain active and enforced. City leadership and City Council would like to review RP3 policies and objectives to ensure a clear path forward for the program prior to expanding any further.
The Residential Parking Permit Program (RP3) is designed to make Fort Collins neighborhoods safe and pleasant places to live, work and attend school by managing/reducing on-street parking congestion. The program helps to provide close and convenient on-street parking for residents by reducing the volume and impact of non-resident vehicles in neighborhoods. It protects residential streets by using a system that limits parking in a neighborhood to only those residents and their guests with permits during the posted time limits and allows 2 hours of parking once a day for non-residents. Each neighborhood in the program has its own unique parking requirements, and solutions are tailored to each area to take into account the neighborhoods' particular needs.
