This summer, Parking Services will install about 100 parking meters on both sides of 8th Street between "N" and "J" streets. Meters will also be installed on "J" Street between 8th and 9th streets. City Parking Manager Wayne Mixdorf said the meters are being installed to help the City better manage parking in the area of the new housing development at 801 "N" Street, which is scheduled for completion in August. This new development will potentially bring 600 new residents to the area.
Parking Services is now installing new signs, and the street striping and post installation are scheduled to begin in July. The meters will be installed in August, and parking enforcement would begin Thursday, September 1, 2016. Parking will be unavailable in some areas for short times during the striping process only.
Mixdorf said the meter time limits are still being reviewed, but it is anticipated that the meters on 8th Street between "N" and "L" streets as well as the meters on "J" Street will have two-hour limits. The meters on 8th between "L" and "J" streets are expected to have five-hour limits.
City parking supervisors will visit each business impacted by the installation of the new meters this month. In July and August, those parking in the area will be notified with leaflets placed on vehicles.
