City Holds More Community Meetings For Short North Parking Proposal

The City of Columbus is planning another public meeting on Tuesday, April 4 at 5:30 p.m. at the Goodale Park Shelterhouse. Residents and city officials will be addressing the issues of public parking in the Short North and discussing proposed ways of fixing them.

The pilot program, which was assembled following a Short North study, puts forward the idea of a series of parking zones in the area. Residents will be allowed to purchase a parking pass for $50, while shoppers and visitors are suggested to use paid lots for longer stays and High Street parking for those hopping out for quicker errands.

The forum follows a March 22nd city hall meeting, that heard emotional testimony from residents of the Short North, frustrated with their traffic and living situations.


Before the city gets started on its current plan of parking zones and paid passes, the pilot must go through a series of these public forums, to make sure it garners the approval of the residents and businesses in the area. To make sure your voice is heard, be sure to drop in on any of the following neighborhood meetings;

  • Tuesday, April 4 5:30- 7:30 p.m. Goodale Park Shelter House, 120 W. Goodale St.
  • Tuesday, April 11 9 a.m.- 11 a.m. Le Merdien, The Joseph Hotel, 620 N. High St.
  • Wednesday, April 12  5:30 p.m.- 7:30 p.m. King Avenue United Methodist Church, 229 King Avenue.
