Park Atlanta installs more meters – more revenue for the city
With assistance from the Moving Vehicles Division of the Atlanta Police Department, and Officer Somers, we are working to remove a taxicab stand from its perch at Broad and MLK. This is part of our overall transformation of Broad Street. We hope to replace this stand with metered parking administered by Park Atlanta. This will increase residential and business parking in the district. We are hopeful that this transition will occur by the end of August 2012.
We Won. We are hoping that new metered parking will be installed by the end of the year.
Per established policies set forth by the Atlanta City Council, public notification is required prior to the installation of new parking metered spaces. In accordance with 12-O-1140 a public hearing will be held during the November 28, 2012 Transportation Committee meeting. The Department of Public Works has requested through the Department of Planning and Economic Development, that the following caption be placed on the November 27, 2012 NPU-M meeting agenda.
