Parking in Otterbein
Otterbein constitutes Permit Parking Area #8 under the City of Baltimore Parking Authority's Residential Parking Permit (RPP) Program. An area #8 parking decal must be displayed at all times in the windshield for resident vehicles parked on the street. Visitors to area #8 must obtain a visitor-parking pass from a resident and display it on the dashboard of their vehicles during those hours. The Parking Authority of Baltimore City is responsible for the administration of the RPP Program. Decals and visitor passes can be obtained from the Parking Authority at 200 W Lombard St, Mon-Fri, 8 am to 5 pm, 443-573-2800. Applications and further information can be found online at residential parking permit website.
To obtain decals, specific proof of residency must be provided (see web site for details). Each household is entitled to a decal for each vehicle registered minus the number of official off-street parking spaces for that area #8 address plus two visitor permits.
Visitor passes are intended only for the short-term use of persons who are visiting Otterbein residents. Visitor permits may not be loaned, sold or otherwise misused and may be voided under such conditions. No lost or stolen visitor permits will be replaced.
With the frequent change of owners and renters for many of the Area #8 housing units, there is a constant problem with Permit Parking program abuse. It has been only through the cooperative efforts of the residents, the Association and Baltimore City that the number of abusers has been kept to a minimum. All residents of Area #8 are asked to report to the association any person abusing the RPP Program.
