In 2005, around twelve million people visited North Carolina's coastal region. Many coastal visitors come by car and have difficulty finding places to park. State and federal parks usually have large parking facilities, but some coastal communities struggle to accommodate visitors. Public access and parking issues among North Carolina's coastal communities are examined.
The North Carolina General Assembly has given cities and towns authority to acquire, construct, and operate off-street parking facilities.
Downtown Durham’s new parking plan is to roll out new meters along with a rate increase for all paid parking. The city says its primary goal is not to raise money but to alleviate a parking crunch downtown. By installing metered parking, the city hopes to create more turnover, thus allowing visitors easier access.
Durham’s new metered parking system went into effect on Monday. Revenue from the meters is projected to be over one-million dollars per year, and will go toward increasing, maintaining, and providing security for parking downtown.
