The City of Sarasota is bringing "Pay Parking" to St. Armands Circle.
There will be 40 pay Stations and 20 Parking meters installed at St. Armands Circle, by Mid December.
The stations and meters will not become active until the completion and opening of the St. Armands Parking Garage, which is expected in Mid January.
There will be 4 different price points for the "Pay Parking" at St. Armands Circle.... The closer the parking spot is to everything, the more it will cost... Each pay level, corresponds with a different color.
Dark Green $1.50 per hour
Yellow $1.00 per hour
Magenta Lot $.75 per hour
New Parking Garage $.50 per hour
Light Green Free
Lulu says $1.50 an hour, for so many of the spots, is too much. I think, the timing of this is terrible, with effects of Red Ride still hurting many local businesses. It starts in January.
