Residential Permit Parking Program (RPPP)

Unincorporated areas of Alameda County including:
Ashland, Castro Valley, Cherryland, San Lorenzo, Sunol, Livermore Valley


The Residential Permit Parking Program (RPPP) is enacted to mitigate the parking of motor vehicles by non-residents upon roadways within unincorporated areas of Alameda County. This Program allows a community to implement a preferential parking program to allow on-street parking for residents of a designated area who have purchased parking permits.

Narrative Overview

On-street parking demand along residential roadways that are near facilities such as BART stations, and shopping malls has been increasing. Some residents in these areas are experiencing a limited supply of on-street parking spaces along their properties. In order to mitigate this situation, Alameda County has implemented a Residential Permit Parking (RPPP) Program.

This Program provides residents of the Unincorporated areas of Alameda County an option to address this displacement of on-street parking spaces by non-residents. Under this program residents of a designated neighborhood can purchase parking permits to park along roadways in their area, while on-street parking is restricted for motorists without permits.
