The DC USA retail development will have $1-per-day parking available to locals during the snow emergency that starts this morning.

From 9:30 a.m. until two hours after the emergency ends, Columbia Heights residents can take advantage of the deal. The garage has 1,000 parking spaces.

During the emergency, locals can’t leave their cars on Georgia Avenue, 16th Street and U Street, as well as sections of Park Road, Kenyon Street, Irving Street, Columbia Road, Harvard Street, Florida Avenue and 9th Street. If they do, they could get fined and towed.

According to Councilmember Brianne Nadeau of Ward 1:

Upon arrival, after you receive your ticket go to the parking office to have your name and license plate information recorded by the attendant. On your departure, you will have to present the same ticket received in order to get the discounted parking rate. Once the emergency has been lifted, residents will have a 2-hour grace period to retrieve their vehicles. Any resident still utilizing a space after the grace period will be charged the difference at the standard rate for daily parking.

  1. What a great idea! This is something EVERY parking garage ought to emulate. Get all those cars off the streets and the garages would make a little money (when otherwise they’d be empty).
