Parking restrictions eased in entertainment district

Common Council is moving to ease overnight parking restrictions uptown…at least during the summer.

The amendment will allow for overnight parking in the uptown entertainment district on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from May to October. The restrictions would remain in place during the winter because of snow removal.

Ian MacKinnon, head of the Parking and Transit Commission, admits it’ll mean a loss of revenue from parking tickets but doesn’t think it will have a large impact.
