City of Ann Arbor Disablity Parking Request Policy​ 

It is the policy of the City of Ann Arbor to accommodate, where possible, requests for on-street disability  parking. For off-street (private) disability parking requests, contact the property owner.

A resident with a disability may request that the city designate an on-street disability parking space in the vicinity of his or her residence. The city will add signage and designation where feasible, at no charge to the resident.

A business may request that the city designate an on-street disability parking space in the vicinity of the business. These requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, based on the parking conditions within the vicinity. If approved, the city will designate a space and install signage, at no charge to the business. Within the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) district and other designated areas, the city may also install parking meters at the disability parking space.

Conditions of this policy are as follows:

  1. Requests will be honored, where possible, for residents and businesses without adequate access to off-street disability accessible parking.
  2. The designated space may be removed at the discretion of the Transportation Manager or his/her/their designee.
  3. The resident/business does not maintain exclusive use of the accessible parking space.  Anyone with a valid disability parking placard or license plate may utilize the space/meters.
  4. If the disability parking signs are installed in an on-street residential parking permit zone, the user will be subject to the conditions of the residential parking permit regulations.

Users of on-street disability parking spaces are subject to all additional parking regulations and enforcement, including posted time restrictions, meter payment, and snow removal restrictions.
