|Parking Meters on South Lake|
Parking meters are headed to South Lake this summer and are scheduled to be installed along the Avenue in July. The high-tech multi-space meters will incorporate customer-friendly features such as on-screen instructions and acceptance of credit cards for payment. The South Lake Avenue Business District will benefit in a variety of ways. Most importantly, the revenue generated will be invested into the District and the increased parking turnover will keep spaces available to customers. A successful example can be seen through the Old Pasadena Management District.
