Dallas’ Residential Parking Only program allows residents to prohibit non-residents from parking there during certain days and times. Residents on RPO blocks must display a city-issued hang-tag on their cars. The purpose of the program is to address parking problems that arise in neighborhoods adjacent to bars, restaurants, and retail shops where those patrons tend to take up residential parking spaces.
To get resident only parking, you’ll need to get a petition signed by occupants of two-thirds of the residences abutting the side or sides of the block(s) for which the zone is requested. Only one signature per residence is allowed, and only complete blocks (one or both sides of street) may be designated as a Resident Parking Only zone.
You can download the petition and get additional information on the city’s website.
