COLUMBUS, Ohio (24-7 News)--The city of Columbus is making another round of changes to parking rules in the Short North, effective today.
Officials said the new requirements are being implemented after listening to public feedback from residents and business owners in the neighborhood.
As of today, the guest parking rate for 24-hour residents is being lowered from six-dollars to three-dollars, meters on Goodale Street will now be one-dollar an hour, and time limits have been removed.
The Parking Division says there will be a second phase of guest parking rule changes coming by the end of the summer.
Earlier this year, the city began using the ParkColumbus app for residents and visitors to pay for parking using their smartphones, and eliminate the need to return to their vehicles to add money.
It's all in an effort to alleviate parking and traffic issues in the popular neighborhood.
