Today the city of Muskegon Heights will begin a pilot for parking fees at City Parking Lots. We will begin with Pay-for-Parking in the evening hours on weekend dates in the downtown area. Working collaboratively with our downtown businesses, this initiative is intended to achieve multiple goals: potentially raise new revenues to assist in park beautification, create employment opportunities, reduce city expenditures by reducing trash and littering caused by vehicles that linger in the parking areas, reduce criminal activity caused by loitering or appurtenant to vehicles lingering in City Parking Lots, encourage new business and industry in the downtown area.


Note: Retail commerce usually falls into two categories, defined by two different types of objectives - single-setting patronage over an extended period of time that involves moderate to large transaction amounts, or high-volume patronage that involves small to moderate, but frequent transaction amounts. A parking strategy that encourages patrons to be intentional about their parking means and ways, works to achieve an enhanced environment for both objectives. Thus, it is our hope that these measures will benefit existing business and attract new business, as well as achieve our wide range of other goals.

I like this idea. The city parking lots are for the city's business and NOT people having social hour events!! Time to clean up all the unregistered cars left on people's property collecting dust too. It looks like a junk yard in some area's. It is against the law to have a unregistered vehicle in the state of Michigan. If people want to "collect" junk in there yard and break the law then make them pay!!

So how much for parking you can't implement something without giving the price for. Parking

So basically taking MORE money out of the residents of a city with the HIGHEST POVERTY RATE and HIGHEST TAXES. You want them to pay to park their car at places where there is no businesses anyways?? y’all want to tackle crime?? How about start ADDRESSING THE POVERTY RELATED FACTORS THAT DRIVE CRIME!

A lot are scared to go in the evening anyhow, and now you are trying to capitalize on what the city did at a park. Yeah make people pay to go where they were sketchy about anyhow.

Good job increase revenue and decrease loitering
