New Parking Changes Coming To Short North
Columbus officials are making changes to parking rules in the Short North just a few months after implementing them. The revisions are a result of feedback from residents and business owners.
Starting Monday, the city will also launch an on-street retail validation program, which will take $1 off parking fees through the Park Columbus app, after drivers get a store to sign off.
The 24-hour resident guest pass rate will lower from $6 to $3. Residents can purchase up to 300 guest passes per year under the present rules.
The phone-only side street rate will go from $2 to $1 per hour between 8 a.m.-4 p.m. in three permit zone.
There will also be no time limit on parking on Goodale Street, and parking rates at meters will change at 4 p.m. instead of 3 p.m.
Columbus eliminated free on-street parking in the Short North, Victorian Village and Italian Village on January 22.
There are about 6,000 on street parking spaces in the Shorth North.
