Active Rulemaking

Parking on the Capitol Campus

In July 2015, the Legislature directed the Department of Enterprise Services (DES) to complete an implementation plan to meet a set of recommendations from the 2014 Transportation and Parking Study, through the proviso outlined in 2EHB 1115. Components of the plan include putting in place a clear policy on reserved stalls, increasing visitor parking, shifting reserved parking to general use zoned parking, and establishing compliance tools.

In support of the implementation plan, Enterprise Services first updated the Capitol Campus parking policy in early 2018 and is now updating Capitol Campus Parking and Traffic rules.

Use of the Capitol Campus

The rules governing use of the Capitol Campus were first put in place in 2009. Since that time, the makeup of users and the associated activities occurring on the Campus has changed. Because of this, the current rules governing use of the capitol campus need to be updated in order to address the changing environment of the Capitol Campus. The purpose of this rulemaking is to:

  • Expand the scope to include government use of the public areas of the capitol campus;
  • Provide rigor to the permitting process;
  • Address safety and health concerns; and
  • Align content between various WAC chapters governing different aspects of the use of the campus.
