Visitors to the District will soon have to look a lot harder for parking.

Two years after agreeing to improve parking, D.C. officials are implementing a plan that will convert thousands of parking spaces into resident-only spots.

The changes are happening in some of the city’s most crowded neighborhoods, including Columbia Heights and Adams Morgan, where one side of many streets will be reserved for residents with the proper parking stickers. 

Some other popular neighborhoods, such as H Street NE, already have such regulations in place.

But not everyone is happy about these plans. Ward Eight Councilmember Marion Barry is worried that visitors will be forced to park in public garages, where spots can cost $20 or more a day.

DDOT is hosting a “parking summit” at Judiciary Square on Dec. 4 to hear suggestions from residents on how to manage parking. The meeting runs from 6 to 8 p.m.
