Parking is always an issue in any downtown, and Belleville city council will make a decision
on parking at its meeting Monday afternoon.
The city is preparing for Phase 2 of the reconstruction of the downtown between Victoria and Bridge
Staff is recommending free parking with a two hour time limit in the entire Riverside parking lot, which
holds 264 spaces.
The Belleville Downtown Improvement Area wanted free parking with no time limit, but city staff is worried
about abuse and a loss of parking revenue.
Note the new start time today.
Council meets at 4:00 p.m. this afternoon at city hall.
