Jamie Adams admits she never would have imagined cheering the sight of a parking meter, but after months of frustrating searches for an open spot around the revamped Myriad Gardens, she is among those eagerly awaiting the day when newly installed meters are finally activated.
Pay stations will serve about 10 parking spaces, with no more than five car lengths between the spot and designated pay station. The price for parking also is going up, with a minimum of 75 cents for 30-minute parking in either one-hour or two-hour zones. Parking zones will be marked by color coding. One-hour meters will feature a blue cap and two-hour meters feature an orange cap. On-street parking will be enforced 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, except public holidays.
