After a five-month break, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Salt Lake City started reinforcing metered parking areas in the city on Wednesday.
The city paused metered parking enforcement back in March as part of its COVID-19 pandemic response and started phasing back by allowing a two-week warning period starting in late July. As of Aug. 13, drivers will be required to pay $2.25 per hour to park in designated areas from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., for a maximum of two hours.
Parking on Saturdays is free, with a two-hour maximum, and Sundays will continue to have no restrictions.
“We are glad we were able to suspend enforcement for the time we did, and understand it was helpful [when] many street-level businesses were closed,” Mayor Erin Mendenhall said in a news release last month. “Now that they’ve reopened, there is a need for people to be able to access that convenient, short-term, on-street parking.”
