GR considering metered parking on weekends


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Parking in Grand Rapids is always an issue, but now it is about to come to the forefront again as the city is in the beginning stages of a plan that could see the hours for parking meter use expand.

Josh Naramore, the city’s director of parking services, says the initial plan calls for the parking meters downtown to extend the hours that used to end at 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The biggest change would come on weekends, when the meters will be in use 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays and from noon to 8 p.m. on Sundays.

The city says the reason for the change is not to make more money, as the increased revenue will be offset by increased need for enforcement.
