OTR parking permit enforcement started
Some Over-the-Rhine residents spent seven years lobbying City Hall for a neighborhood parking plan that included permits and some on-street spaces reserved for residents. City Council finally granted their request last fall, but it's already seeing problems two months in. On one hand, a one-month grace period — so people living and working in the neighborhood could get acquainted with the new rules before the city begins writing tickets — was supposed to end January 31. The city quietly extended that grace period into February, though, to some residents' surprise.
