Changes are coming to the West Side Market. An announcement was recently made by local officials considering adding Sunday hours, creating Wednesday evening hours and charging for parking. An effort to tackle the market district’s parking issues could yield many additional spaces between now and 2017. A City Commission formed by Mayor Frank Jackson started considering some of these topics, two years before the market’s centennial in 2012. Ward 3 Councilman Joe Cimperman plans to introduce legislation to allow changes to parking.


Parking rates at City of Cleveland garages and meters have officially increased effective as of June 15th. Legislation that was passed in early 2015 permitted the Division of Parking to increase the rates in order to add additional revenue to pay for the maintenance of the lots and upgrades to the meter technology. Rates are up 25 cents to a dollar.
