New Parking Meters Going In Downtown, Lower South Hill

New parking meters are being installed downtown, starting today and going through the next two weeks. Meters will be put up in the following neighborhoods:

•           From Wall to Stevens streets on Sixth Avenue
•           Howard from Fifth Avenue to Sixth Avenue
•           Fifth Avenue from Howard to Stevens streets
•           Pacific, Second, and Third avenues from Bernard to Brown streets

A map of where the meters are going in can be viewed at Spokanecity.org The new meters will help create more available parking spaces for people living in the area and help create turnover for local businesses. 

City workers distributed flyers to notify residents and businesses of the new parking meters. Parking passes will be distributed to apartment residents to allow them to park for free for this first year.
