Parking Update

City rethinks parking rates in downtown

"Two days after City Clerk Sandy Kennedy said she supports raising meter rates and parking fines, Jim Lindsay, of the city’s redevelopment department, said the city is revisiting a study on downtown parking."

"The study recommended implementing a tiered fine structure where first-time offenders would receive a warning citation, but those who consistently park illegally could be fined $50 or $75. The study found there are 7,600 available parking spaces downtown, of which 2,800 are owned by the city and Allen County."
