The city of Loveland will delay its downtown parking meter pilot program, which was scheduled to begin Monday, to accommodate the installation of new meter poles.

City representatives did not announce a new start date for the experiment, which will charge $1 per hour for some downtown parking spaces and — city leaders hope — relieve parking and traffic problems in the increasingly busy neighborhood.

When the program does start, drivers can pay for their spaces in City Hall kiosks or using the same ParkMobile smartphone app employed by Cincinnati, Columbus and Lexington.

The app allows users to reserve or renew their spaces from a distance, get reminders when their meter is about to run out and pay online.
