In the Spring of 2019, the city of Raleigh proposed changes to parking in downtown Raleigh, including Glenwood South. A neighborhood meeting was held on April 24, 2019, and we heard about the proposed changes. The city proposed the following changes:
increase rates on meters
add more meters in Glenwood South
extend meter hours until 8pm
GSNC submitted comments on the proposed changes and coordinated with parking officials. Further study was recommended and it was emphasized that further data needed to be gathered before changes were made. As a result, no new meters will be added in Glenwood South, rate increases will go into effect with the intent that the increased revenue will be used for street improvements and the metered hours will only be extended to 6pm.
