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.

  1. All that new construction (Loveland Station) and NOW they are dealing with parking??!! That entire area is such a cluster it isn’t even worth it to visit there anymore.

  2. Wow, IMO this only adds to the confusion re: parking in down town Loveland. I cant imagine taking my grandchildren to the park to relax & enjoy the amenities yet constantly checking the time, anticipating the need to rush back to the car to move it. Another reason to avoid the area.

  3. Here’s the problem I can see. Visitors don’t know what area’s are 2 or 4 or 8 hour parking spots. If you do mark them that doesn’t keep people parking for 2 or 4 hours out of the 8 hour parking spots. I’m assuming the intent for the 8 hour parking spots were for employees working in the downtown area. The problem is what happens when the 8 hour spots are filled up with 2 hour and 4 hour patrons leaving no where to park for the 8 hour patrons?

  4. Quote from article:

    Does that mean after June 30th, citations will be issued? If so, that is an extremely drastic change to Loveland’s downtown culture. What’s next? Parking meters!
