New Parking Changes Coming To Short North

Visitors in the Short North will soon be able to pay for parking with an app.

Visitors in the Short North now can use an app to pay for parking, but other rules are changing Monday.

Columbus officials are making changes to parking rules in the Short North just a few months after implementing them. The revisions are a result of feedback from residents and business owners.

Starting Monday, the city will also launch an on-street retail validation program, which will take $1 off parking fees through the Park Columbus app, after drivers get a store to sign off.

The 24-hour resident guest pass rate will lower from $6 to $3. Residents can purchase up to 300 guest passes per year under the present rules.

The phone-only side street rate will go from $2 to $1 per hour between 8 a.m.-4 p.m. in three permit zone.

There will also be no time limit on parking on Goodale Street, and parking rates at meters will change at 4 p.m. instead of 3 p.m.

Columbus eliminated free on-street parking in the Short North, Victorian Village and Italian Village on January 22.

There are about 6,000 on street parking spaces in the Shorth North.
