Nevada City Pushes Out Parking Fee Increase

Nevada City has decided to delay implementing a parking fee increase until they can get more input from cummunity members. In June, the City Council had originally approved raising the parking meter rates from twenty-five cents an hour to one dollar per hour. However, the Chamber of Commerce held a community meeting where a majority of business owners protested the increase, and as a result the council revisited the issue Tuesday evening. During Public Comment on the issue, business owners and residents complained the increase would be a hardship on local residents and workers.
