Dunedin Invites Residents to Try Out Parking Pay Stations
Residents will have a chance to rate the pay stations. Comments will be used to help the city choose new parking pay stations.
DUNEDIN – In February, Dunedin city commissioners set aside the existing downtown parking plan and told staff members to come up with a plan that is easier to understand and more user-friendly.
Commissioners also told staff members to replace the parking pay stations in use last year with more user-friendly pay stations and implement the program by mid-September.
Part of the process is choosing parking pay stations for the paid parking areas. City officials want residents’ help to choose the right pay station.
Beginning today (July 16) through Aug. 4, the city is asking residents to visit the lobby of the Dunedin Public Library, 223 Douglas Ave., to test the four pay stations that are on display. A comment card will be provided so each station can be rated. The comments will be part of the final decision making process on what pay station works best for Dunedin.
All the proposed stations are pay and display options: Pay at the station and display the ticket inside the vehicle.
