Working with stakeholders in the West 7th Urban Village, the city’s parking management team could implement a new rate structure for metered on-street parking.
The new rate structure will allow two hours of free parking before 5 p.m. to retail customers visiting the area. This amendment is intended to address concerns expressed by business owners who contend that on-street metered parking has contributed to a decline in business. Other stakeholders were concerned with the lack of available on-street parking due to long-term parking and a lack of turnover parking in the district. This change will also discourage the misuse of on-street parking by employees.
The City Council is scheduled to vote on the new rates at 7 p.m. Dec. 10. If approved, the new rate structure will become effective Dec. 13 and will allow two hours of free parking daily, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., within a three-hour tiered rate structure. A $3 rate would be charged for the third hour if a patron stays beyond the allotted two hours of free parking during the day. A rate of $3 per hour would be charged between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m., with no free parking.
