Recently we asked 1,800 people how paid parking would affect downtown – over 600 people visited this website!
On April 2nd the Parking Task Force voted unanimously to – recommend paid on-street parking, elimination of the downtown parking tax, and annual review of income/expense. The meter charge would be $1.25 a hour.
Does the elimination of the parking tax change how your feel about
paid on-street parking downtown?
This recommendation will go to the City Council Worksession on April 29th at 5:30 PM. It is estimated the City Council will vote in May to install paid parking downtown. Once the council votes, it will take 9-12 months for study and installation. To review who serves on the Parking Task Force click here.
