How can I get part of my block designated as NO PARKING?
By City of Dallas ordinance, “No Parking” signs are handled on a petition basis. In a residential area, a petition must be signed by 80% of affected citizens in the same block, on the same side of the street, with 51% being in favor of the change. There is a $50 non-refundable application fee and a fee of $25 per sign installed/removed. Two major considerations are sight distance and whether the street is wide enough with parking to allow emergency vehicle access. The petition can be downloaded or the Transportation Engineer can be contacted for further information at (214) 670-3260.
