Parking meters may go high tech

City Council president Elaine Brown has always had big ideas for downtown. Replacing its parking meters may be her next frontier.

Now halfway into her year-long presidential term, Brown is planning a meeting with the Council

Imo, this is a good idea. Miami and Fort Lauderdale already have these and they seem to work great and they look a lot better than a cluster of individual parking meters.

They are excellent... I especially enjoy not having to carry change and being able to use a credit card.

Smart move because it will help to control parking in a less hectic enviroment. It will be easier of the police and the people paying for parking meters.

This is kinda related: My cousin and I went downtown to walk around and eat at Iyesu (sp?) and we finally found a meter on Adams Street, just east of Main. But it was a One Hour Only meter. Why do they limit meters to one hour? Luckily we were able to eat lunch in less than an hour, and made it back to the car in time, lol. Hopefully, this new system will allow for longer parking. But clearly, it's easier to park on the Southbank and ride the Skyway over.
