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.
“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 [quote_right]Kennedy said the Loveland Police Department will issue warning notices, but not citations, beginning May 1 through June 30[/quote_right]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.
