New Meter Rates for Wisconsin Avenue

DCist picks up on the new guidelines for parking rates in "premium demand zones" throughout downtown and selected neighborhoods.

According to the guidelines, Wisconsin Avenue from Van Ness Street to Western Avenue qualifies and will be subject to rates totaling $2.00/hr. The kicker is that enforcement here will be in effect until 10:00 PM.

Unless the corresponding Residential Permit Parking times are also adjusted, this may simply make parking in residential areas harder in high-traffic areas such as Friendship Heights and Tenleytown.
