Parking time-restrictions in effect

Loveland, Ohio
– Visitors who are still driving vehicles and needing parking spots in Historic Downtown Loveland, will soon see changes to the way parking is managed.

Loveland City Manager Dave Kennedy

“The Downtown Parking Advisory Committee (DPAC) – recommended parking solutions will be implemented before next month,” said City Manager David Kennedy. “These solutions will address on-street and off-street parking areas, setting time limits for short- and long-term parking, creating a more inviting area for downtown visitors, residents and patrons.”  

The parking restrictions will designate two-hour, four-hour and eight-hour parking locations throughout downtown Loveland.  Kennedy said in a press release, “On-street parking will be limited to two hours – allowing a quicker turnover for short-term visitors.”

According to the plan, parking near Nisbet Park, the downtown park, and the lot nearest Bob Ronker’s Running Spot, plus the parking area near Montgomery Cyclery and Plaid Room Records will have four-hour limits. Parking near City Hall will include four-hour parking in front of The Works restaurant and eight-hour parking behind the buildings

Kennedy said the Loveland Police Department will issue warning notices, but not citations, beginning May 1 through June 30

nearest Paxton’s Grill. The new Linda J. Cox Trailside Parking Lot – across the trail from Eads Hardware and Loveland Canoe and Kayak Outfitters – plus the East Loveland Nature Preserve parking lot will allow eight-hour parking to accommodate cyclists and downtown business employees. 

Kennedy said the Loveland Police Department will issue warning notices, but not citations, beginning May 1 through June 30, allowing visitors, residents, and patrons at stores and restaurants time to adjust to the parking solutions and locate the appropriate parking site for their visit.

The large parking lot at Loveland Station Apartments is controlled by the apartment management and the parking restrictions there, are not affected by the new City policy.

This is Rep. Brad Wenstrup’s response to the firing of FBI Director James Comey that he posted on Facebook today:

Yesterday, reports broke that President Trump removed James Comey from his role as FBI Director based on the recommendations of both Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Here’s my take: While the public deserves clarity as to the timing and reasoning behind the immediate firing of FBI Director James Comey, it’s indisputable that the controversies surrounding the director had become an area of concern for many Americans on both sides of the aisle. My primary concern is that the American people get the facts they deserve from the ongoing Russian investigations, which will continue to be led by the Department of Justice, in coordination with the FBI, and in addition to Senate and House Intelligence Committee investigations.


Senator Rob Portman posted this message today on Facebook:

I want to thank Director Comey for his service to our country. Regardless of his handling of the Clinton email matter during the presidential election last year — for which both parties had questions and concerns — he has always done what he believed was in the best interest of the country. Given the timing and circumstances of the decision, I believe the White House should provide a fuller explanation regarding the president’s rationale. The American people must have faith in a strong, independent FBI. I’m concerned about eroding trust in this premier law enforcement agency. It is important that whoever is nominated to succeed Director Comey is a highly-qualified and respected leader who will provide a fresh start for the bureau.

WASHINGTON, D.C. –U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) released the following statement in response to news that President Trump has fired FBI Director James Comey. 

“Director Comey’s tenure as FBI Director has been marred by questionable judgment. I want to learn more about the reasons behind his removal. At the same time, the President firing the FBI Director in the middle of an investigation into the White House’s ties to Russia raises serious questions about the independence of the FBI and the integrity of the ongoing investigation.  The President must nominate a replacement with an independent record that is beyond reproach. Now more than ever, we need an independent investigation into Russian ties to ensure the American people can have full confidence in the findings.”


“Yeah sorry, you’re gonna have to listen.”

Loveland, Ohio – This LOVELAND MAGAZINE TV video was recorded during the April 11 Loveland City Council meeting.
