The City of Tucson Neighborhood Parking Program was started in 1983 and has since grown to include programs in 15 neighborhoods. The program helps to manage parking in residential areas where non-resident parking is impacting the ability of residents to park.
Programs protect and improve the quality of life and character in the neighborhood by reducing the amount of overflow parking, discouraging cut-through traffic, ensuring adequate parking spaces for citizens who live in the neighborhood, and developing revenues that can be used for reinvestment in the area.

Neighborhood Reinvestment Program
A portion of permit and metered parking revenue generated within each participating neighborhood is made available to make transportation-related improvements to sidewalk infrastructure, right-of-way landscaping, and traffic mitigation. Earned funds are carried over from year to year until reinvested in the neighborhood. Participating neighborhood associations may propose projects to be funded by this program.
