The Engineering Department receives many requests to install reserved handicap parking spaces along City streets. While the City does not allow on-street non-handicap parking spaces to be reserved, the City does have a Handicap Parking Policy that outlines the process and procedures to create reserved on-street handicap parking spaces for qualifying residents.
Process to Request a Reserved Space
To begin the process, residents should call the office of the City Engineer at (301) 739-8577 ext. 125 to determine if the location of the proposed reserved space meets the requirements of the City's policy. If it does, then you will be directed to visit the MVA's Complaints and Investigations webpage and download an Application for Personal Residential Permit for Reserved Parking Space. After you submit the application to MVA, they will contact your doctor to verify your medical condition, and will then complete an investigation to determine whether or not a reserved space is warranted. If MVA feels that your request has merit, they will notify you, the State Highway Administration, and the City that they have approved the request; the City will then install the required handicap parking sign. To complete that process, please call the MVA office in Glen Burnie, MD at (410) 768-7646.
