Auburnians can expect to see some changes to on-street parking on a portion of Genesee Street in the coming weeks.
From 3 to 6 a.m., parking on Genesee Street from James Street to John Street will be prohibited. The current overnight parking ban downtown bars parking from 3 to 7 a.m. on Genesee Street from Dill Street to Loop Road.
The change in parking is a response to complaints from some Genesee Street businesses about lack of parking for customers due to downtown residents leaving their cars parked on the street for extended periods of time. The new parking ban will also make it easier for the Department of Public Works to plow Genesee Street during the winter. The plan was first discussed during a September Auburn City Council meeting.
