For the benefit of all slipholders, a copy of the Wharf developer's transition plans with graphic depictions of the Phase II, PUD plan is now in the laundry room. Please feel free to look at but leave the books there for other slipholders to also be able to review. This is similar to what can be found on the Wharf website, but may be easier for some to access.

Mandated Parking Meter Changes to Take Effect
Apart from the change to parking enforcement on Saturdays, please also note the following information from the announcement. One more reason not to drive ... ouch!
In addition to the Saturday enforcement, DDOT is also simplifying the District’s parking meter rates. To comply with the new legislation, there will now be only two types of parking meter pricing zones: premium demand zones and normal demand zones.
It will cost $2.00/hour to park in premium demand zones, which include the busiest commercial districts.
It will cost $0.75/hour to park in normal demand zones.
The District’s premium demand zone rate is comparable or lower than the premium rates in other major cities across the nation including New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Baltimore and Philadelphia where rates are $3 an hour or more.
DDOT will also change the hours of enforcement for parking meters in the city’s busiest commercial districts where on-street parking is often scarce. Nighttime parking enforcement hours will be extended to 10 pm in the following “premium demand zones":
Georgetown Historic District*
U Street, NW Corridor
Downtown Central Business District
Maine Avenue and Water Streets, SW
The National Mall
Wisconsin Avenue, NW (from Van Ness Street to Western Avenue)
