RICHMOND, Va. -- The City of Richmond will resume enforcement for parking violations as the city enters Phase Three of reopening.

City officials say vehicles in violation may be ticketed beginning Monday, July 6.

"A 15 minute parking window will be allowed for curbside pick-up accommodations for restaurants in commercial districts and in neighborhoods with numerous restaurants," said a Department of Public Works spokesperson in a release.

In March, the city eased parking enforcement in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Then on June 8, the city resumed Residential Parking Permit District enforcement in several neighborhoods as a part of the city’s gradual re-opening.

Officials say resuming parking enforcement will not impact the parking citation amnesty program put in place during the pandemic.

Under that program, fines and penalties are being waived on tickets received on or after March 16 as long as the original ticketed amount is paid by August 31. Additionally, the total amount due on tickets overdue as of March 16 will be frozen and not accrue additional fines and penalties if paid in full by August 31.
