Delray Beach's free parking coming to an end

Delray Beach's free parking coming to an end

The days of free parking in Delray Beach will soon be over.

Multiple ordinances will be voted on Tuesday to not only determine the cost but for the duration that drivers can park.

New parking meters are being installed along Atlantic Avenue.  Prime spots will now cost people $2 an hour for a max of three hours.

The cost and times vary and range from $1.50 an hour to $2 an hour. Parking garages are $5 flat.

The length of time drivers can park varies around downtown, but there are spots that allow drivers to park for up to 14 hours.

The city estimates the new fees will generate $1.36 million once paid parking begins in 2019.

Three ordinances will be voted on Tuesday night. The meeting starts at 6 p.m. at City Hall.
