Loveland, Ohio – The City of Loveland is moving forward to add more parking to its Historic Downtown business district. 

The surface parking lot, located off First Street behind City Hall and adjacent to the Works Pizza, will have 147 spaces. These spaces will add to Historic Downtown’s current 535 public parking spaces. The parking will be free in this new lot.

In addition, the project includes sidewalks to create a pedestrian connection between State Route 48, Harrison Avenue at the Loveland Bike Trail.

Previously awarded grant monies will be used to construct the lot. The city has secured $1.15 million in state and federal funding: a $900k grant from the Ohio Capital Budget and a $250k grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission.

Originally, the plan was to build a 270-space parking garage, which now is estimated to have cost more than $7 million, according to a press release issued by the City
