Civic Association proposing revisions to permit parking
COVINGTON, Ky. – The Covington Board of Commissioners is considering changes proposed by residents of the Historic Licking Riverside neighborhood to an existing residential parking permit program.
On Tuesday, The Covington Board of Commissioners heard a presentation of the plan from J. Kyle Snyder, Covington Motor Vehicle Parking Authority executive director. The Commission discussed the plan and have placed it on next Tuesday’s agenda for vote.
The Historic Licking Riverside Civic Association proposed the changes to the Covington Motor Vehicle Parking Authority earlier this year, citing resident parking issues due to events, and earned the Authority’s recommended approval. Among the proposed changes are metered parking on Riverside Drive and on Garrard Street near George Rogers Clark Park.
Details of the proposed new plan can be seen HERE.
The existing parking program in the Historic Licking Riverside neighborhood was first established in 2009.
The neighborhood stretches from the Ohio River south to Eighth Street, and from the Licking River west, splitting the block between Greenup Street and Scott Boulevard.
