*Update* Parrott Ave Parking Lot Still Free For Now

The Portsmouth City Councilor has dropped the meter proposal for now.

Last night at a Portsmouth City Council meeting, Councilor Eric Spear, who is in favor of metered parking at the lot, withdrew that motion.

According to seacoastonline, the Portsmouth City Council then voted to add that idea to others in efforts to improve the parking situation to the Parking and Traffic Safety Committee for a future report.

Spear’s proposal called for charging 50 cents an hour at the Parrott Avenue lot and setting an 11-hour maximum time that people could park there.

There are 180 spaces in that lot, but most of them are taken early in the morning.

Don’t fear, the new parking garage is scheduled to open in 2018!
