Hours of enforcement within the metered parking zone will now be from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. Those utilizing on-street parking within the metered zone will no longer be required to pay to park between 5:00 pm and 6:00 pm.

The hourly rate for parking will increase from $0.50 per hour to $0.75 per hour. Methods of payment will remain unchanged, and those parking in the metered zone can pay with either coins or debit/credit card at a parking kiosk or via the Passport Parking app with a credit card. Credit card payments will require a minimum charge of $1.00.

All changes are expected to be completed prior to the start of the new school year. However, incremental changes will be implemented as soon as feasibly possible. Those using on-street parking should be aware that changes may occur without additional notice.
