Longer Times on Downtown Parking Meters
Tuesday, October 16, 2012
By close of business on Tuesday, October 16, 95% of the parking meters in the City’s Downtown Core will be extended to two hours. These changes will take place on over 100 meters between Cascade and Nevada and from Colorado to Boulder.
“This change will make parking more convenient and will allow citizens extra time to spend dining and shopping in beautiful Downtown Colorado Springs,” says Mayor Steve Bach.
5% of the parking meters in the Downtown Core will remain under two hours due to special requests from banks, convenience stores, and the Post Office who have asked for shorter meter times to encourage and facilitate customer turnover in their businesses.
Administrative Services and Innovation Manager Nick Kittle will be available for media interviews between 2:00 pm and 3:00pm.
