The Roxborough Development Corporation (RDC) has assumed responsibility to manage and maintain both the Dupont Street Shoppers' Parking Lot at 514 Dupont Street and the Leverington Avenue Shoppers' Parking Lot at 463-465 Leverington Avenue from the City of Philadelphia’s Department of Public Property (DPP).
As part of this responsibility and for the lots to remain as parking lots for area businesses and residents, the owner, DPP, is requiring the RDC to pay all maintenance and operating costs for both lots. These costs include routine cleaning, electrical service, landscaping, real estate taxes, insurance, repairs, and improvements as well as snow removal.
Coupled with the costs to properly manage the parking lots comes the opening of new businesses, restaurants, apartment units and housing in and around the Central Ridge Avenue Commercial Corridor. To effectively manage the increasing demand for parking and to cover the costs of cleaning and snow removal, new parking procedures will be put in place in 2018.
Newly posted parking hours for both the Dupont Street and Leverington Avenue Shopper’s Parking Lots will be Free 2-Hour Parking Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM and Free 3-Hour Parking Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM. Local residents and business owners have the opportunity to purchase a parking permit that exempts their vehicle from the 2-hour and 3-hour parking limit time restrictions in both parking lots. Parking permits are now available to purchase through the RDC office and are priced at $45.00 per month with both 3-month and yearly passes available.
These parking permits and newly established hours will enable shoppers, residents and business owners to secure convenient and safe parking options while enabling the RDC to properly maintain the lots for future commercial and residential parking use. If you have any questions or concerns or are interested in purchasing a pass please do not hesitate to contact our office at 215-508-2358 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
