RPP has been discussed for the Sherwood Oaks neighborhood to stem the clogged streets caused by St. Edward’s students, employees and construction worker parking. Some Travis Heights/SoCo areas now have RPP. Â There are both advantages and disadvantages to RPP.60% of households have to agree to the permits. An application has to be submitted. Money has to be gathered and tags distributed. Households can have up to 4 permits which cost $15 each. All streets in a neighborhood must participate in order to make the program work rather than just off-load the problems to the next non-permitted street. Some Travis Heights streets near South Congress have enacted RPP with mixed results.
