New parking area North Ionia Avenue, Electronic Payment Zone, Pay by ParkMobile
The area on Ionia Street north of Michigan has seen an influx of daily parkers resulting from numerous developments. The City and the Parking Services Department is tasked with managing the public right-of-way and maintaining the on-street parking availability.
These spaces are not intended for long-term parking. The changes on Ionia Street north of Michigan are the result of consideration and discussion of the City’s Parking Commission and the City Commission. Parking requirements are not intended to be punitive, but to maintain on-street parking availability for everyone.
We are deploying a new pilot project along Ionia to allow for on-street parking to be paid via ParkMobile. All fees for parking are set at a rate to allow for recovering costs for operating, maintaining and enforcement of on-street parking. The rate/maximum time of the electronic payment zone will be $1 per hour/maximum 10-hour zone. Effective January 3, 2017 enforcement of this zone will begin. Vehicles are subject to parking violations if parking is not paid via ParkMobile.
