After continued complaints from local businesses and citizens, the Atlanta City Council is set to make sweeping amendments to the ParkAtlanta contract at its meeting on Monday, Nov. 19, at 1 p.m. at City Hall.  The amendments would  improve customer service, increase transparency of the appeals process, hold the vendor accountable and use signage and technology to make parking on the city’s streets easier.

The biggest changes proposed include:
– Establishing four parking zones with tailored hours of enforcement to align with the requirements in each zone
– Elimination of overnight parking fees in all zones
– Elimination of Saturday enforcement in Mixed Use (primarily residential) zone
– Elimination of Sunday enforcement in all zones
