Town of Vienna Seeks Locals’ Input Again as Public Parking Push Ramps Up

The Town of Vienna will continue seeking locals’ input on public parking following a returned push to make it easier to park in the town’s central business district.

The meeting set for this Thursday (May 9) will follow up on a March brainstorming session hosted by the Town Business Liaison Committee and Mayor Laurie DiRocco.

About 35 business owners and people helped problem-solve and come up with more than two dozen ideas, including short-, mid- and long-term options, like:

  • create a comprehensive parking and marketing plan for Vienna and its business community
  • develop clear and improved Town-branded parking signage
  • actively enforce two-hour parking on Church Street and for designated short-term parking
  • consider financial or property improvement incentives for property owners
  • research feasibility of connecting Vienna Metro, Town Green, Tysons Metro (and residential areas) with a trolley

The upcoming meeting will seek locals’ input on the ideas and any new ideas and possible implementation strategies.

The meetings come on the heels of the town’s decision in January to dissolve an agreement to use a four-story commercial building on Church Street as a public parking garage.

Anyone interested in going can head to the Town Hall (127 S. Center Street) at 6 p.m.
