The city transportation office has come up with a proposition for charging downtown residents to park their cars in public spaces, starting Jan. 1 at a cut rate and phasing increases to what everybody else has to pay over two years.
Surface-lot non-reserved monthly charges start at $20 and rise to $55; parking deck charges start at $25 and go up to $65. Many downtown residents have been parking free ever since they moved in, some more than 20 years ago.
The proposition comes for City Council comment this afternoon, but downtown residents are already weighing in. Condo owner Marcia McNally took an email poll of 75 downtown residents after she got the figures Tuesday.
