In two weeks, new parking hours and meter rates will be coming to Downtown Cincinnati and Over-the-Rhine.
Starting January 2nd, parking meters will be enforced from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday.

Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley is asking council members to sign off on a motion related to the parking lease with the Greater Cincinnati Port Authority. The measure is currently circulating among council members. It would make major changes to the original plan between the city and the port.
Cranley could publicly release details of the plan Wednesday.
The former troubled Kenwood Towne Place, now known as Kenwood Collection will open in the spring of 2015. As it takes shape, Sycamore Township is being proactive to prevent traffic problems.
You don't have to remind Township Board President Tom Weidman how backed up traffic can get in Kenwood around the holidays. He says, "From the first day after Thanksgiving to sometime in January we all have to coexist down there."
