ADDITIONAL BLOCKS ADDED TO THE PARK AND WALK PROGRAM

Eight meters on the west end of the 300 block of West Mifflin Street, fifteen meters on the 10 block of East Dayton Street, and five meters on the 200 block of East Mifflin Street have been added to the Park and Walk Program on a trial basis. These meters have a time limit of 10 hours and cost $1.00 per hour. In every location except 600 Railroad Street, which accepts coins only, payment can be made with Visa, MasterCard, US dollar coins, quarters, dimes, or nickels. Customer comments will be received by the Parking Utility and reviewed, along with usage, in determining whether to make this change permanent. More information and a locator map are available here: Park and Walk Program.
