BY COUNCILOR LITTLE:
RESOLVED, that in accordance with the provisions of Section 33-208 of the Duluth City Code, 1959, as amended, the following parking meter zones are hereby established:
The west side of Canal Park Drive between Railroad Street and Buchanan Street.
Both sides of Lake Avenue between Railroad Street and the Aerial Lift Bridge.
FURTHER RESOLVED, that metered parking shall be applicable between 9:00 o’clock A.M. and 9:00 o’clock P.M. with a limit of two hours of continuous parking.
FURTHER RESOLVED, that vehicles parking in the zones hereby created shall be charged for parking at the rate of $0.25 for each 30 minutes of such usage.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution establishes on street parking meter zones and establishes parking rates and hours therefore.
Parking in Canal Park is presently controlled only by a two hour time limit on parking which is not considered adequate to produce sufficient parking turn-over in the area. It is the intention that the use of meters in conjunction with the time limits proposed will result in more parking being more readily available to more Canal Park users.
The establishment of the zones is required by the City Code in order to authorize the placement of parking meters thereof.
The administration requests that this resolution be tabled and referred to the parking commission for their consideration and recommendations.
