Parking Commission Introduces New Parking Plan for Downtown
Mayor James J. Fiorentini today released the Central Business District Parking Commission parking plan for downtown. Under the plan, the fourth parking plan to be sent to the city council, there will be two hours free parking on all streets in the downtown area. The two hour limit will be strictly enforced with civilian parking officers under the control of the police department.
Unlike the three previous plans sent to the city council, this plan does not recommend charging for parking in the downtown area at this time. The parking commission left the door open to charging in the future.
Mayor Fiorentini today endorsed the plan and called it “an important first step towards better parking regulation and a better downtown.” The Mayor also called upon the council, which for two years has rejected his plan to have civilians enforce parking rules downtown, to allow him to hire civilians to enforce parking rules in the downtown. “We need civilians to enforce parking, and police to fight crime” the Mayor said.
