YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Downtown Youngstown parking decks and parking lots are now regulated by the city. Council passed legislation to that effect Wednesday night.
Owners of parking areas will pay $50 annually if they have 100 or fewer parking spaces. Over 100 spaces, the fee is $75. Council had considered charging about twice that amount. “That comes out to a lot better deal for the parking lots, and we’re satisfied with that,” says Councilman John R. Swierz. “The real reason is we had to have some kind of control. There was no ordinance, control, or anything like that.”
Uniform signage is also being required under the new law.
