Parking rates go up and run later as of Jan 11

The city of New Orleans announced the change Wednesday with the increases set to go into effect Jan. 11. The hours of enforcement have also been extended.

Officials said parking meter rates will increase from $1.50 to $3 in areas of the French Quarter, Marigny, Central Business District and the Warehouse District. Elsewhere in New Orleans, parking meter rates will increase from $1.50 to $2.

Hours of enforcement will extend from the current 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. to 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Officials said a compromise was made to the proposal, which initially sought to extend enforcement to 10 p.m. Parking enforcement will continue Monday through Saturday.
