Hearing set for proposed Bethlehem parking meter price hike

By ,

Downtown Bethlehem merchants, workers and even those who shop and dine downtown may be interested in a hearing scheduled Sept. 20 at Bethlehem Town Hall to discuss a proposed parking meter rate increase.

The city’s parking authority is suggesting a hike from $1 per hour for parking in the city to $1.50 an hour.

In comparison, nearby in Easton parking meter rates are 25 cents per 15 minutes, or $1 per hour. In most of Allentown parking is also $1 per hour, except for the area surrounding the PPL Center where parking is $2 per hour.

The parking authority will give a presentation on Bethlehem’s proposed meter rates and provide time for public input at the meeting, which is scheduled for 6 p.m. in the town hall’s public hearing room.

The parking authority recommends any rate changes to the mayor, who decides whether to accept or reject the change.
