New sustainable parking system for downtown Using the WPTZ app? Tap here to view the video. According to the Department of Public Works, the new measures are partly to improve the customer experience and in part to save the city's garages. "With investment, these garages can last another few decades," said Chapin Spencer, director of public works. "They're structurally sound, but they could definitely use some maintenance." The city is proposing a new meter rate of $1.50/hour which it says will bring in much needed revenue for its aging brick and mortar. "One is almost 30 years old, and one is almost 40 years old," Spencer said. "Those rate changes will help us reinvest in the system and continue to provide future amenities." Another part of the city's sustainable parking plan is to replace some of the city's older parking meters with new pieces of technology. The city says this will make parking more easy and more convenient. As we reported in May, 300 new smart meters in the downtown core will accept credit cards. Down the road, the city says this new piece of technology will let drivers pay for parking on their phones, too. The city also plans to create an automated lane in the Marketplace Garage for quicker, more convenient exiting. It will also install sidewalk kiosks where they best fit. "We're going to see where these multi space meters serve a better purpose and where the single head smart meters serve a better purpose," Spencer said. This summer DPW will test out how five kiosks that may serve from 10 to 12 parking spaces, and that take cash and credit cards, fair downtown. The city says this 90 day pilot program is an important first step in paving the way for a new, not outdated parking system. will still be free outside the designated downtown core.)
