While your neighborhood cred may not help you get a table at Estadio, it may help you park your car, if Councilmember Jack Evans (D-Ward 2) has his way. With the explosive growth in the Logan Circle area — both residential and restaurant/retail — local residents are having a tough time finding enough spots for their cars at the curb.

DCist reports that the pilot program, as currently envisioned by Evans, will restrict one side of the included area streets for cars with a residential parking sticker, all day, every day. The other side of certain streets will have restricted areas for non-residents without parking permit zones.

The measure is slated to be introduced shortly, and ANC 2F will discuss the proposal at their meeting this evening at the Washington Plaza Hotel at 7 pm. It appears there is support for the measure, which resembles a program in place for Eastern Market residents as well as parts of Ward 1.

Borderstan’s Tom Hay will be at tonight’s ANC 2F meeting and we will have a report for you on Monday.
