Downtown parking changes coming this week


Visitors downtown will soon have a little more leeway when it comes to parking.

This week city staffers will be out on Main Street and other downtown streets changing the parking signs.

The sign changes follow a Dec. 3 meeting when city commissioners voted to eliminate timed parking enforcement on Saturdays and parking enforcement after 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Currently, parking time limits are enforced from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Once city staffers change the signs, they will let people know there is no parking time limit after 6 p.m. during weekdays, and no time restrictions on Saturdays.

Parking enforcement is coming full circle to the parking time limits that were in place before parking meters were installed in spring 2011, and subsequently removed.
