Guest speakers at the September 17, 2019 AHNA membership meeting were Gerald Taylor, Group Transportation Coordinator for City of Fort Worth, and Peter Elliott, Parking Manager for City of Fort Worth’s Transportation and Public Works Department. Here is a link to the power point presentation they made at the meeting about the newly expanded permit parking in Arlington Heights:

The expanded boundaries go west from Montgomery into our residential neighborhood for three blocks, stopping short of Sutter Street and Pershing Avenue on the south. A map of the affected area is included in the power point link above.

If you live in the affected area and plan to park any cars on the street, it’s imperative that you register for permits. Otherwise, be prepared to pay for illegal parking tickets. Residents can pre-register their vehicles now by going to www.fortworthtexas.gov/parking/resident. There is no charge to get up to three stickers per household, plus two vendor passes. Guest passes for up to thirty days are also free. After the initial registration, guest passes are available 24/7 at www.fortworthtexas.gov/parking/resident. Residents can print off guest passes directly from the website as needed.

Starting October 1, you can pick up the actual parking permit stickers and hangtags Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at SP Plus at 405 W. 7th St. You must show a driver’s license and proof of residency (utility bill or copy of your lease). If you cannot arrange to pick up your permits and passes, please contact SP Plus at 682-747-6991 to make other arrangements.

The Arlington Heights permit parking program is one of four citywide. Two full-time parking compliance techs have been hired by the City to monitor all four permit parking programs during major events. The techs have the power to write citations. The police will also be enforcing the permit parking. The City Council voted to limit the amount of the fines to between $38 and $100, at the discretion of the person who is writing the ticket. Only the police have the authority to have cars towed.

Phase 2 of the parking permit program will start being enforced on November 1. To report violators, citizens can call 817-392-2091 Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. After hours and on weekends call the police non-emergency number 817-392-4222.
