Restricted Parking Zones

A restricted parking zone (RPZ) is a parking management tool generally used to help ease parking congestion in residential neighborhoods caused by non-residential parking generators such as schools, hospitals, arenas, or mass transit stations. A parking zone is not appropriate where parking congestion is caused primarily by residential demand.

Currently there is one residential parking zone in the City of Shoreline, located south of Shoreline Community College (click on map below). Residents within the red dashed area are eligible for restricted parking zones permits.


To apply for, or to renew your permit for this zone, please fill out the RPZ Permit form.

If you are interested in starting a Residential Parking Zone in your neighborhood, please review the following documents to learn more:
