BY PRESIDENT NESS:
BE IT RESOLVED, that the city council refers the following matter to the city parking commission for its review and recommendation, to be reported back to the council by the council’s first meeting in September:
Should the time limit for parking meters in the Downtown area be extended from one hour to two hours?
The report should study and address the potential effect on parking of those that plug meters on the street all day and study if it is possible to increase meter time limits and, at the same time, encourage parking in parking ramps.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the parking commission and staff investigate the possibility of chalk marking tires in an effort to prevent all day parking Downtown.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution charges the parking commission with a task related to potential changes in parking policy.
