Historic East Village

Due to the error-ridden news story about parking meter changes in the East Village, we are hosting a public input meeting on Monday 5/15 at 6 p.m. at Metro Waste Authority conference room.

Contrary to what you may have understood from reports by local news outlets, the city is still in the workshop phase of the concept of making changes to downtown meter time limits. No final decisions have been made regarding parking on city streets in the East Village.

Please plan to attend and bring ideas/thoughts/concerns.

Meeting is held in the main floor conference room of the Metro Waste Authority building - please enter from the western side of the building.
