City Requests Input on Paid Parking Proposal 

SAVANNAH, GA (April 17, 2018) — A meeting to present a proposal to install paid parking at Forsyth Park will be held April 24 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Civic Center. Residents and members of the business community are encouraged to attend and to share any feedback or concerns about the proposed changes.

The proposal from City Staff suggests implementing a parking charge of $1.00 per hour in three locations in Forsyth Park: the Drayton Street Café lot, the Park Avenue Tennis Court lot and the angled spaces on the park-side of Park Avenue. Parking would be enforced Monday through Saturday, 8am to 8pm, beginning in July 2018.

Revenue generated in the first year will be used to cover the initial cost of the meters and other ancillary start-up costs. Additional revenue will be used to maintain park facilities (including the Band Shell, Café building and restrooms), provide additional police patrols and install a public restroom at the south end of the park, and to upgrade the band shell lighting.

When: Tuesday, April 24, 4pm – 7pm

Where: Civic Center, O’Connor Room

Who: The Office of Special Events, Film & Tourism and the Department of Mobility & Parking Services
