Peoria parking prices may soon change

PEORIA, Ill. -- The price you pay to park in downtown Peoria could soon be changing.

Tuesday night, city council members will look at decreasing the price of off-street parking in the city.

The proposed change stems from a 2012 study which shows that more people were using on-street parking because of the lower price.

This new proposal would fix that by lowering deck prices by $.50 an hour.

If passed, parking deck rates would change from $.75 every half hour to $1 an hour.

The proposal is also included an increase in on-street meter parking prices to $1 an hour.

 

Prices for on-street parking have not been changed since 2002.
