OVER-THE-RHINE, Ohio (WKRC) - People who live in Over-the-Rhine should find it easier to find a place to park starting Jan. 1.
That's when the city's residential parking permit plan takes effect in the neighborhood. Five hundred spaces will be set aside for those who get the permits.
You have to apply for the permit. It's $60 for a year or $25 if you live in subsidized housing and can prove it. Parking in a permit spot without a permit is a $50 fine. The first month will be warnings only, then you can be ticketed.
There will still be about 800 meters in OTR that can be used by the general public without a permit.
