According to a Powerpoint presentation by Lee, Colorado Springs parking structure rates are 20% of average competitor’s hourly rate, 17% of their evening rate, 63% of the individual monthly rate and 53% of the large group rate.

Lee is suggesting that meter parking increase $.25 per hour annually for the next five years along with extending meter hours and “progressive pricing” that would charge a higher rate for “more desirable” parking spaces by creating four tiers of meter pricing.”
