RPP Hearings Need Your Voices

RPP Hearings Need Your Voices
The County is proposing changes to the Residential Permit Parking Program (Zone 6 for Lyon Village). The proposed changes will make the program less effective for Lyon Village and much harder to enforce. The proposed changes declare the current Purpose and Intent of the RPP to be “secondary benefits” and seek to substitute a primary purpose to “manage parking demand.”

Without a vigorous response from Residents these changes will likely be accepted by the County Board with little consideration of the negative impact on Residents. Please send your comments to the Planning Commission and County Board and please let us know by sending a CC of your emails to RPP@LyonVillage.org
