So what do residents do about parking in Capitol Hill, especially around the 16th and Grant area ? I found a couple of affordable places around there, and I can walk to work. The resident permits sound like they don't do much and are kinda hard to get. Are there monthly overnight lots/garages and how much are they? How long can you leave a car in the same spot on the street before you have to move it in those areas? I'd be willing to park 5-6 blocks away if I can leave it for awhile w/o needing to move it. Also, please don't suggest I get rid of my car if moving down there. Already considered it... not gonna happen LOL

Getting a permit
Residential Permit Parking

However, even with a permit you may have to move your car depending on what day it is for street cleaning at that curb. Some curbs go for multiple days but dont forget to read the street signs or you'll get a ticket like clockwork.

Because I got tired of playing musical chairs with my car I got rid of it 3 cities ago...

Thanks for the info! I think I'm just gonna move a little further east down the Colfax area (14th and High) where there are some apts that have affordable parking for about $30/mo. Since the Colfax bus runs 24/7, I should be good.

I've lived in Cap Hill, congress park, and Uptown (north Cap Hill), and I visit many friends there very often. Parking really isn't that big of an issue. I never have to park more than 3 blocks away from my house (or a friends).

Get a residential parking pass - this allows you to ignore the time restricted areas (1 hour, 2 hour, etc). You're still suppose to move it every 3 days I think - but that's RARELY enforced.

That said, if a building offers parking for the $30 you mention, it's definitely worth it for me.

City ordanences are that you can not park your car on the street longer then 24 hours. This is not inforced unless the home owner your parking in front of complains to 'Parking Enforcement' that you have parked in front of their home too long. Then a city parking Enforcement officer comes by and places a warning on your windshield.
I'm experienced in this area because I'm one of the complaining homeowners on Capital Hill.

..
Yes. On street cleaning days, there always seemed to be someone on our block that got a ticket. If I remember correctly, street cleaning begins in April and ends with November.
Parking enforcement was extremely rigid in Cherry Creek, but that might be because it's so tiny and tony.

I used to work at 14th and Gilpin. Parking there seemed pretty tight, but I always found a place.

That is simply not true, although it may be true to metered spaces. There are always plenty of unmetered street spots around grant and plenty around 14th and High too.

I think the 24 hours is only for downtown. The rest of the city is 4 days if my memory serves me.
