City council to decide on parking changes


The Bloomington city council will review changes to parking enforcement that will affect drivers at this week's city council meeting.

According to the city Parking Commission's report, proposed changes would increase parking revenue to better cover the currently subsidized costs of parking operation. If proposed changes are voted into action, free parking will be significantly reduced, parking permits and fees may increase, and parking violations will be more expensive.

The city’s parking consultant, Desman Design Management, said in a report that as of right now, parking revenue is not sufficient to fully fund parking operations and maintenance expenses.

The changes will also reconfigure and add neighborhood parking zones to reduce high amounts of violations and make hours of operation and enforcement of public parking more uniform. Hours of enforcement and operation may also be extended.

The council will meet at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall.
