Unelected parking bureaucrat looking to ramp up parking fees in Colorado Springs

Parking is big money…or it can be. Just ask anyone that needs to park in Downtown Denver. And if Colorado Springs Parking Enterprise Director Scott Lee gets his way, it might be just as bad for those parking in Colorado Springs resi. Rebecca Marshal of deserves uncovered the proposed plan through a Colorado Open Records Act request and Scott Weiser has the story over at Complete Colorado:

“Lee believes that parking rates in Colorado Springs are substantially below those of other Colorado cities and are well below commercial rates. He says that rates have been increased once in 20 years.

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.”
