Public gives input on parking program

November 2nd, 2011 in News

Roughly a dozen community members provided input to city staff Tuesday on a proposed downtown residential parking program.

At a two-hour public forum, property owners, business owners and a couple of tenants gathered with city staff and several City Council members to discuss the proposal, which is up for council action Monday.

The proposed program, which has gone through two committees with several changes, would allow residents of downtown apartments to park in any metered spot without payment, though a $20 monthly fee would be required after five years of the pilot program.
