Columbia residents living around the North Village area have been facing parking issues for some time now, but tonight the City Council will hear out some proposed fixes.
Brookside resident Eleanor Clegg has to pay $80 every three months to park her car in a garage four blocks away from her apartment. She thinks there must be another option.
“I wish there was more free parking in general, like a parking lot that you can just parking for free,” she says. "But I think more meters will help."
The City of Columbia Public Works Department recently decided to end the trial period for multi-space parking meters on Ninth Street from between Broadway and Locust.
