The City of Lawrence will soon convert all 19 of its short-term parking stalls to two-hour spots.
The city’s 15-minute stalls have been underutilized compared to the two-hour ones, according to a city news release Friday.
“When introduced, the 15-minute time frame was intended to encourage high frequency turnover rates for visitors when picking up or dropping off items at Downtown Lawrence storefronts,” according to the release.
“… Because the two-hour parking stalls can also be used for short-term parking needs, the City made the decision to convert all 19 of the current 15-minute parking stalls to two-hour parking stalls.”
The price to park will not change, however — 15 minutes in a two-hour stall will still cost you 25 cents or $1 per hour.
