New On-Street Metered Parking in Old Town Begins August 18
Starting August 18, six additional blocks of Old Town will have two-hour metered parking:
- 1300 and 1400 blocks of King Street
- 100 block of North Fayette Street
- Unit block of Prince Street
- Unit block of Duke Street
- 200 block of South Union Street
The 2012 Old Town Area Parking Study (OTAPS) Work Group identified these blocks as locations that will benefit from increased parking turnover. The City’s Traffic and Parking Board reviewed and approved the proposed parking meter locations in July 2013. City Council amended City Code on September 21, 2013. to designate these blocks as metered parking zones. The new metered blocks will provide the option to pay-by-phone or pay via a multi-space parking meter. The metered parking hours will be consistent with existing metered blocks in the City, with meter hours from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
