BY COUNCILOR LITTLE:

     RESOLVED, that in accordance with the provisions of Section 33-108 of the Duluth City Code, 1959, as amended, the following parking meter zones are hereby established:

           On both sides of First Street between Third Avenue East and Fourth Avenue East;

           On the north side of First Street between Fourth Avenue East and Sixth Avenue East;

           On the south side of First Street from 125' west of Sixth Avenue East to Sixth Avenue East;

           On the west side of Third Avenue East between Second Street Alley and Second Street;

           On the west side of Fourth Avenue East between Superior Street and Second Street.

     Proposed rate to be one quarter for 30 minutes with a 12 hour limit.

     Metered parking shall be applicable between 9:00 AM and 9:00 PM.

     This meter zone will take effect upon installation of the parking meters.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  This resolution establishes on-street parking meter zones and establishes parking rates and hours therefor. These zones are in the area of the new parking ramp and elimination of free on-street parking is needed to increase the utilization of the new ramp. The cost of installation of the new meters is about $37,500 and the estimated yearly revenue is $40,000. This request has been approved by the parking commission and the traffic engineer and is recommended for approval.
