Why'd they do away with the parking around Washington Park? For construction of the garage underneath the park?
FYI I pay less than $20/month for my parking space connected with my condo in TriDeca @ 13th and Vine. What you are being asked to pay is indeed absurd.
^-yeah totally doesn't. It probably was a holdover from when the neighborhood was densly populated.It seems that Cincinnati has a hard time getting how to make a perfect urban environment work.

I am not sure why but I think it has to do with aesthetics and keeping people from parking their and partying out of their car. Anyway, I hope that they offer some kind of monthy parking at the underground garage, but if that got too popular it would hinder their fees collected during Mayfest etc... so who knows what will happen.
Here in Columbus, street parking in densely populated residential areas are limited to those who pay for a parking permit. Meters are located only near commercial areas or parks. I don't know how long they have done this for, but it seems to keep the original neighborhood intact without needing to tear buildings down for parking. My only concern with applying this to OTR is that it has so much ground floor retail with residential areas above. This could make it difficult to decide where permit parking should be, and where meters should be placed.
