On-street metered parking time limits are getting an update

In order to keep on-street paid parking EASY, CONVENIENT, and ACCESSIBLE, the City is proposing to update time limits for 147 on-street parking spaces. This is all in preparation for the replacement of the outdated on-street paid parking devices that are at the end of their 2G technology life. Updates are based on information from the Downtown Parking Study and the type of surrounding area.

Overall, parking customers will see an increase in 4 hour and all-day spaces.

Proposed time limit changes:

Now Proposed # of Meters
2 Hours 4 Hours 61
2 Hours All-Day 9
4 Hours 2 Hours 3
4 Hours All-Day 39
All-Day 2 Hours 19
All-Day 4 Hours 16
