The City of Tucson Residential Parking Program was started in 1983 and has since grown to include programs in more than 14 neighborhoods. The program helps to manage parking in residential areas where non-resident parking is impacting the ability of residents to park. Programs protect and improve the quality of life and character in the neighborhood by reducing the amount of overflow parking, discouraging cut-through traffic, ensuring adequate parking spaces for citizens who live in the neighborhood, and developing revenues that can be used for reinvestment in the area.
