CINCINNATI -- Parking at a meter will cost a bit more in multiple commercial neighborhoods across the city, but not by as much as originally proposed.

In a memo issued in August, City Manager Harry Black outlined parking meter rate increases, which will be fully implemented by Thursday, Sept. 21.

No increase will exceed 25 cents, Black said.

The increases were part of the 2018-19 budget approved back in June.

The following neighborhoods' commercial districts will increase from $0.50 to $0.75 per hour:

  • Clifton
  • Corryville
  • The Heights
  • CUF
  • East Walnut Hills
  • Hyde Park
  • Mount Lookout
  • Northside
  • Oakley
  • College Hill
  • O'Bryonville
  • Pleasant Ridge
  • Walnut Hills

Current rates in Downtown and Over-the-Rhine vary, but will all also receive a $0.25 increase:

  • Downtown Long-term A, $0.25 to $0.50
  • Downtown Long-term B, $0.50 to $0.75
  • Downtown Long-term C, $1 to $1.25
  • Downtown SW, $2 to $2.25
  • Downtown East, $2.25 to $2.50
  • Over-the-Rhine East, $1.25 to $1.50
  • Over-the-Rhine West, $0.75 to $1
